DFCC Bank ventured into commercial banking in 2015 by extending its expertise in project lending gained over six decades. While providing comprehensive development and commercial banking services, DFCC Bank has been leading the industry in digitally-enabled products and services, while playing a significant role in the growth of the digital economy in the country. The Bank was established in 1955, pursuing the idea of ensuring balanced regional and sectoral development, as well as fostering the growth of marginalised industries, areas, and social segments, especially in a developing country such as Sri Lanka, where the role of a development bank has been crucial. It was the first development bank in Sri Lanka, and one of the oldest in the region. DFCC Bank has emerged as the lender of choice for entrepreneurs, industrialists and agriculturists, especially those in the SME sector. Embracing environmental sustainability among its key areas of focus, the Bank has emerged as the preferred lender for “Green” development projects, including waste-to-energy, hydro, wind, and solar energy projects.


With its reach and service footprint spanning 139 branches across the island, DFCC Bank offers its customers access to over 5,500 ATMs across the country via the LankaPay ATM network, in addition to online and mobile banking and “DFCC MySpace”, the Bank’s self-banking solution. More details on the Bank’s branch network are provided on page 69.
