Our continuous focus on growth and profitability has given us good dividends. The strong performance during the first half of FY23, even in the midst of macroeconomic challenges, makes us confident of a strong H2 FY23. Towards our endeavour to create a sustainable and credible bank, the journey ahead looks exciting as we aim to continue the momentum and explore growth opportunities.”

Ketan Merchant, Chief Financial Officer said, “Q2 was another quarter of solid execution and we continue to progress on our growth & profitable journey. Our business model is structured to generate disproportionate bottom line growth due to operating leverage play as evident in Q2 FY23 PAT margin. We are confident that our well-invested infrastructure and our high margin product growth will give us a unique financial edge in H2 FY23 and beyond.”
