Amjath Nazeer Abdul Careem completed all the examinations as well as the case study of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka (ICASL) prior to his 20th birthday. This is an all-time record for the ICASL and according to the regulations he has to wait until he is 21 years old to be admitted as a member of the institute, SJMS Associates said in a media release.

Mr. Careem had his early education at Amal International School and thereafter proceeded to Saudi Arabia with his family and studied at the Indian International School for two years. On his return he joined the Royal Institute and after his London O/level examination he completed the exams of the Association of Accounting Technicians of Sri Lanka (AAT) within a year.

He then proceeded with the CA examinations and joined SJMS Associates (which is an affiliate member of Deloitte) in May 2014 for his practical training as prescribed by the ICASL. Mr. Careem’s maternal grandfather T. S. Samath was a legendary auditor at Ford, Rhodes, Thornton & Company (now KPMG) under whom many of the present CA’s of the 1960’s and 70’s have learnt their basics in auditing. His maternal uncle Tony Samath was also an alumnus of Someswaran Jayewickreme & Co (presently known as SJMS Associates) and worked both in Colombo and Male, in the Maldives for many years.
