Commenting on the results and financial performance, Mr. Vijay Chandok, Managing Director and CEO of ICICI Securities said: As we look back on the past quarter, we are satisfied to see the outcome of our articulated strategy of being a neo financial services company offering a suite of products and services across investments, insurance and loans taking shape.

Given the structural shifts taking place in India like formalization and equitization of savings, entry of 10-15 crore youth in the job market annually and projected healthy GDP growth over next several years leading to overall rise in affluence level, we believe we have a long runway for growth.

We are focused in building a long-term sustainable business and towards this we continue to invest aggressively in building blocks for the future as we cement our position as a complete financial lifecycle partner. Going forward, we expect some of our newer non-equity initiatives like loans, insurance, and wealth management attain significant scale.
