Sri Lanka’s fastest-growing life insurer Softlogic Life has made it to the Forbes ‘Asia’s Best Under A Billion 2019’ list, a business ranking which spotlights Asia’s 200 top-performing listed companies with less than US$1 billion in revenue with consistent top-and bottom-line growth.

Softlogic Life is the only company in Sri Lanka and one of the only two insurance companies in the Asian region to achieve this momentous feat.

Forbes has shortlisted Softlogic Life from 1,400 finalists, which was based on a universe of 19,000 candidates, for passing their criteria for profitability, growth and modest indebtedness.

Softlogic Life was placed in the final 200 for producing the highest sales and earnings per share growth for both the most recent fiscal year and the last three-year period, as well as the strongest one-and-a-five-year average return on equity, the local company claimed in a media release.

“During the last financial year, Softlogic Life executed a superlative financial performance by achieving its highest-ever top line and bottom line.

In the previous five years, the company has consistently doubled its market share and reached 12.5 per cent at the end of 2018 and a revenue growth of 33 per cent compared to the average industry growth of 12 per cent.

By consistently delivering outstanding financial results, Softlogic life has earned the distinction of being the fastest to cross the milestone of recording GWP (Gross Written premium) of Rs. 10 billion within just 19 years of operation.

Softlogic Life recorded a compound annual growth of 35 per cent over the last five years against an industry figure of 16 per cent reflecting the efficacy of their systems, processes and people,” media release said
