The recognition at the CA TAGS Awards 2023 further highlights Softlogic Life’s commitment to superior standards in financial reporting, showcasing its dedication to excellence even in the face of adverse market conditions.

Outshining some of the longstanding giant conglomerates in the Sri Lankan business landscape, Softlogic Life Insurance secured the Silver Award for Overall Excellence in Annual Financial Reporting for the third consecutive year. This achievement, which was secured for its 2022 annual report themed ‘Reimagining’, places the company in a distinguished league of corporations recognised for exemplary reporting practices, reaffirming Softlogic Life’s steadfast commitment to transparency and their commitment to creating maximum value for all stakeholders.

These efforts have been further amplified through innovations such as ‘Generate Your Own Report’ to create customized sub-reports of the annual report, Sri Lanka’s first-ever video version of the annual report for the 6th consecutive year and interactive dashboard for investors, enabling them to analyze various financial metrics simultaneously. These are a few other reasons behind Softlogic Life clinching the Gold Award for the Insurance Sector, Silver Award in Integrated Reporting and Bronze Award in Corporate Governance Disclosure categories, cementing its position yet again as an unequivocal leader in financial reporting excellence.

It provides a comprehensive account of how Softlogic Life created value for its stakeholders through a balanced and concise analysis of the company, its external environment, strategy, resource allocation, business model, performance, corporate governance and other valuable prospects. The report also voluntarily embraces global benchmarks such as the International Framework and Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standard’ Core’ options. Additionally, Softlogic Life has obtained the Sri Lanka’s first ever Assurance Report on Integrated Reporting for the third consecutive year, underscoring our dedication to provide credible non-financial information to stakeholders.”
