ICICI Securities Report

We interacted with the senior management of Axis Bank Ltd. Prudent and conservative path to cushion volatility and deliver superior return on equities was evident from -

  1. Not chasing growth - lending to right segments at a right price;
  2. more focus on risk adjusted return on capital than book growth in corporate banking; and
  3. carrying forward Covid-19 buffer and utilising it in extreme contingencies.

Few encouraging strategic initiatives include -

  1. Re-oriented corporate structure and leveraging Axis One platform;
  2. preparing itself for a huge opportunity in government business;
  3. change in mindset and technology-led structural transformation in micro small and medium enterprise business.
