Sector View & Outlook
Over the last 3 years the strength of the Indian banking system has come to the fore. Globally, banking
system is trending more towards simple banking, government governance and reasonable leverage; all
these traits have been present and strengthened in the Indian Banking system over the last decade. As a
result, the Indian banking system remained unscathed out of the global turmoil.
However, we were not entirely insulated from the global turmoil. There was a liquidity crunch witnessed
in India as well, which made availability of capital, both debt and equity, scarce for Corporate India. Like
in other geographies, this was responded effectively by slew of monetary easing and fiscal easing
measures, which has effectively contained the crisis and helped in restoring business and consumer
confidence, albeit at the risk of rising fiscal deficit and inflation. Post the aforesaid measures, given India
being a consumption driven story, the economy rebounded far more and far faster than the developed
economies. The growth in automobile and commercial vehicle sales numbers, consumer durable sale
numbers, recovery in real estate market, etc are some of the indicators that bear testimony to the above
Given our strong foundation of the economic recovery, India was one of the first few countries that started
reversing the easy monetary stance to curb rising inflation. This has set the tone for gradual rise in
interest rates. Further, given the stable and able government, there is a stark focus on reducing fiscal
deficit going forward. Also, the government is now focusing on Infrastructure investments laying the
foundation for the next growth phase in India. All this means the following for the economy and the
Reducing fiscal deficit – this augurs well for the banking system and for the economy as the bond
yields would ease benefiting the banks.
Monetary tightening – this curbs rising inflation and benefits banks as they are able to generate
higher margins in a rising interest rate environment due to lag in deposit pricing.
Infrastructure development – this would ensure that credit growth in the system will remain robust
over the next decade.
Consumption story – this would continue to grow parallel to the other growth engines of the economy,
providing impetus to the credit growth.
3 Product/PN/Ver 1.0/February, 2011
A peculiar feature of the Indian banking system is that it is by far the largest funding source for
Infrastructure & other capital expenditure by Corporate India and government deficit financing, which
makes banking sector very crucial enabler of economy growth. Thus, financial services remain one of the
fore front sectors to benefit out of the next big growth phase of India.
Going forward we expect the following to happen over a longer term:
GDP to grow at a healthy pace of over 7.5%, which would make India as one of the fastest growing
economies in the world.
Credit growth to remain robust at ~18-20% over the next few years, at the back of infrastructure
spending and consumption demand.
Implementation of base rate would ensure less volatility in Net Interest Margins and consequently
profitability of banks.
Given the economic recovery, pressure on asset quality would ease and asset recovery cycle would
support banks profitability.
All of the above augurs well for the Indian banking system which would make the sector a preferred play
on markets over the longer term.
In the near term there are few headwinds facing the sector which has increased the volatility in stock
Flattening of the yield curve (to some extent due to tight liquidity),
Pressure on deposit growth pushing up deposit rate faster than envisaged, consequently putting
downward pressure on margins, and
Negative publicity on the entire sector due to the recent frauds un-surfaced.
However, these headwinds appear to be temporary and thus offer progressive investment opportunity in
the sector from a long term investment horizon.
