EPF proven a winner with its large divestiture of John Keells (JKH) shares to Malaysians in 2012

June 16, 2018 (LBO) - The EPF as of late has not been proven to be the most savvy investor, but with one of its biggest moves in the stock market 6 years ago, the provident fund clearly made the right choice.

 During that 6 years, it is likely that the EPF has earned close to a 100% return with its investments in fixed income. Stock brokers in Colombo are constantly lobbying the state institutions (of which EPF is the largest) to invest more money into the stock market.

 For those Sri Lankan's who hold their savings in the EPF, this has been a blessing as investments into the stock market would have likely drastically underperformed fixed income over the corresponding period.  The Central bank has not provided analysis of how its investments in the stock market have performed relative to fixed income over long time periods.
