Introduction

“The Investors’ Day” is a two day program which is proposed by the Department of Accountancy and Finance which comprised of series of activities filled with knowledge and entertainment to enhance and enrich investment instinct of the neighboring community of Sabaragamuwa University of Sri Lanka (SUSL). As an educational body who are mainly involved in the fields of finance, banking and insurance, we believe that it is our solemn duty and responsibility, to give back to the community through educating and familiarizing people about financial and investment environment. As evidence suggest one of the main reasons for the resistance towards investment in Sri Lanka is the lack of knowledge and pessimistic presumptions about investment avenues such as real sector, capital market and money market. Thus, our effort is to mainly focus towards removing such barriers in the mindset of potential investors in Sri Lanka particularly wider community of the SUSL. This worthy task would not only contribute to uplift the standard of living of the neighboring community but also indirectly subsidize for economic development with the wealth of informed investors in the country.
The two day program has been scheduled with several events focusing on many stakeholders such as undergraduates, school teachers, school children and general public of the neighboring region. The highlights of the program to be organized are interuniversity quiz competition, educational exhibition on finance, banking and insurance, workshop and a guest lecture series targeting university staff, neighboring public, school children and teachers and launching of edited research series book by the Department of Accountancy and Finance. The event will conclude with a cultural & entertainment night with local and international participants.
