Softlogic Invest is Sri Lanka’s 1st youth-focused, 100% end-to-end digital investment product in the open-ended unit trust industry. For the first time in Sri Lanka, an investment brand set out to create an investment culture among the youth, inviting them to invest in a money market or equity unit trust, with only LKR 5,000/-, using just a smartphone. Softlogic Invest is a new entrant to the industry and successfully managed to capture 57% of new accounts opened industrywide, within just its first year, among many other feats; including becoming the highest and 2nd highest contributor to growth in the equity and money market unit trust categories, respectively.
Discussing the award, Kavi Rajapaksha- Vice President / Head of Marketing at Softlogic Life & Invest said, “Investing has been long confined to the elite in Sri Lanka and Softlogic Invest, together with our strategic partner Loops, was able to breakthrough the myth of people needing a deep understanding of investment and millions of rupees to be able to actually start investing in Sri Lanka. This award is a testamentto our strategy and a brand construction done right. We hope this inspires more and more Sri Lankans to get investing and propel Sri Lanka towards that much needed investment mindset, which most developed countries have.”
