People’s Leasing and Finance PLC has weathered a year of unprecedented customer concessions and converging challenges to record the highest profit in the Group’s history of Rs. 5,596.33 million for the financial year ended 31 March 2021. From the start of the pandemic, customers needed cash and People’s Leasing remained open throughout the period to provide the same. With the government’s announcement of the moratorium, People’s Leasing began processing qualifying facilities, extending the benefit to customers and for those who were not eligible for the moratoriums, they were given the option to restructure their facilities to suit their repayment capacity. In addition, default interest has been waived for a period of nine months, further relieving customers.

CEO and Managing Director Shamindra Marcelline said, “PLC’s annual report has been recognized time and time again, both locally and internationally. It highlights our financial stability, our corporate structure, our good governance, our CSR initiatives, our strategic direction and our vision”. He added, “This recognition from CA Sri Lanka is an endorsement of PLC’s reporting and communication capabilities and good governance.
