John Keells Holdings PLC

Sri Lanka's Leading Conglomerate in terms of market capitalisation, John Keells Holdings PLC is the largest listed conglomerate on the Colombo Stock Exchange. Other measures tell a similar tale; their group companies manage the largest number of hotel rooms in Sri Lanka, own the country's largest privately-owned transportation business and hold leading positions in Sri Lanka's key industries: tea, food and beverage manufacture and distribution, logistics, real estate, banking and information technology. Their investment in Sri Lanka is so deep and widely diversified that their stock price is sometimes used by international financial analysts as a benchmark of the country's economy. For over 130 years, they have remained proudly independent, forcefully committed to private ownership and private dividends, and relying on foresight, expertise and integrity for success and growth. Having a significant portion of their shares held by foreign investors, their Group has also partnered with some of the world's finest business establishments, from DHL to American Airlines, from Samsung to Toshiba, and from Thomas Cook to Kuoni. For emerging-market investors and those seeking a business partner in Sri Lanka, John Keells is an option that simply cannot be ignored..
