traced back to the late 1990s with Amana Investments setting up a Sharia
based financing institution.
Profit-sharing financing methods built on Sharia compliant concepts have
been practiced at village level on an informal basis prior to the 1990s.
Amendments made to the Sri Lanka Banking Act No. 30 of 1988, in 2005
permitted LCBs and specialized Banks to offer certain Islamic banking
In January 2011, Amana Bank was issued a commercial banking license to

Sound Growth in Core Banking

The Bank will achieve operational breakeven levels supported by sound

growth in core banking. The operational breakeven is estimated to be
reached at a total asset value of LKR 26.18 Bn which the Bank should
achieve in FY2014 based on current growth trends.
Amana Banks asset growth has exceeded the asset growth of peer banks.
With only a 2 year track record of operations (compared to 18 years of its
closest peers), Amana Banks asset base has already reached over 58% of
its closest peer (as at June 2013).
This growth indicates that Amana Bank will achieve its breakeven
operational levels much faster than the duration taken by its peers.
