About DFCC Bank

Established as a fully-fledged commercial bank at present, DFCC Bank was Sri Lanka’s pioneer development bank, incorporated in 1955 under an Act of Parliament, and was one of the first development banks to be instituted in Asia.

In 1956, DFCC Bank became the first bank to be listed on the Colombo Brokers’ Association, the precursor to the Colombo Stock Exchange, and has been a listed company ever since.

As the first development bank in the Nation, DFCC Bank has been the financier behind trailblasing Sri Lankan entrepreneurs, particularly during their early stages. The Bank continues to be the preferred lender of choice for “Green” development projects including waste-to-energy, hydro, wind, and solar energy projects, in addition to other large start-up projects.

Honed over the course of six decades, the expertise of the Bank’s project lending teams is unmatched in the industry. Today, DFCC Bank is at the forefront of pioneering digitally-enabled products and services, offering customers unmatched values and benefits.
