The company has since seen tremendous growth with impressive strides towards its goal of becoming a multidisciplinary engineering organization.
One of the Group’s core competencies is business restructuring. Subsidiaries of the Navara Capital Group such as Navara Securities, Navara Forex & Money Brokers Ltd., and Navara Capital Partners provide services as an independent investment bank, in addition to capital market advisory services, and management of debt and equity listings in the Colombo Stock Exchange, including stockbroking. The Group’s diversified portfolio also taps into the food and beverages sector, in the form of Alerics ice-cream, as well as hospitality services.
