Commenting on the results and financial performance, Mr. Vijay Chandok, Managing Director and CEO of ICICI Securities said: We had a satisfactory quarter and are progressing well on our articulated strategy of pursuing long term sustainable growth by continuing to diversify in favour of non-broking business. For this, we are investing in right kind of products, services, partnerships. Today broking revenue is about a third of our overall revenue, against two thirds a couple of years back.

The journey we began several quarters back to evolve as full-fledged financial marketplace with technology as the backbone of our operations and delivery, is progressing well. Our platform continues to add new features and capabilities, serving the entire lifecycle requirement of customers across their financial needs.

There may be short term moderation in growth and market opportunities, but the runaway is long. We see multi-year tailwinds in the form of increasing financialisation and digitization of savings, continued entry of large number of youth in the job market every year, and rising affluence, and we are uniquely positioned to serve the evolving needs of our customers.
