With a proud heritage of over 40 years of being in business, Multi Finance Plc (MFPLC) has been a source of strength to businesses and entrepreneurs in the urban, rural and SME markets, playing a pivotal role in contributing to the growth of the Sri Lankan economy.
The company’s acquisition by rapidly expanding conglomerate Fairway Holdings in June 2017 has created greater potential for the company to expand with existing customers as well as exploring untapped credit markets.
Fairway Holdings, the leading property developer in luxury vertical solutions, has rapidly ventured into multiple business areas including leisure, financial services, waste management, aviation, trading, biotechnology and aquatic resources.

Serving as independent non-executive directors are the following: Dr. Ravi Ajith Fernando, Imal Fonseka, Prasann Leanage, Shelton Pieris, K.D.P.C. Abeysekera and W.A. Lakshaman. As a result of the acquisition, MFPLC has experienced a rapid evolution, attracting the industry’s best talent to join its corporate management and expanding their existing branch network.The team is well-resourced with highly qualified financial specialists to identify customer requirements and offers the most pragmatic financial solutions.
