Century Financial, prides itself on pioneering innovative financial solutions that prioritize sustainability and responsibility. One of Century Financials' high points was the successful integration of sustainability and ESG principles throughout the business operations and offerings. This was achieved through a comprehensive approach that incorporated responsible investment practices, environmental considerations, and social impact assessments across all financial services.

Century Financial focuses on educating and engaging clients about the importance of ESG factors in investment decisions. This involved providing transparent information about the sustainability metrics of investment options and offering guidance on selecting investments that align with clients' values.

The innovation lies in the creation of sustainable finance products, redefining the traditional financial services by integrating environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria into investment decisions. This innovative approach involves a range of financial instruments, from green bonds and ESG-focused mutual funds to impact investing.


Century Financial embarked on a journey to restructure existing financial products and develop new offerings aligned with sustainability and ESG criteria. These included green bonds, ESG-focused funds, and other investment vehicles that prioritize companies or projects with positive environmental or social impacts.

The company formed partnerships with various stakeholders, including non-profits, industry experts, and regulatory bodies, to strengthen its commitment to sustainability. Collaborative efforts aimed at driving industry-wide change and promoting responsible financial practices.

"When you talk about service and technology we ensure that in all our platforms in the company we provide and we deal with markets, it is very important, we provide investment insights, we have regular webinars, we are also a knowledge centre, so we provide daily marketing snapshots, learning key trading concepts" (Ms. Sameera).

Century Financial is committed to regular reporting and assessment of the impact of its sustainability initiatives. This involved tracking and reporting the environmental and social impact of investments, ensuring transparency and accountability to stakeholders.

"We also for those who are investing in the market for the first time we create investors guides, we talk about which companies are doing well, which is something they need to look at, we also have something called the investing IQ in which we can ask our clients to check their investment knowledge in order to keep themselves appressed on the latest investments in the financial markets" (Ms. Sameera).
