Mumbai: HDFC Bank has been recognized as the ‘Best Bank’ by global magazine Finance Asia for the 5th consecutive year. The Bank was adjudged as India’s top bank at the publication’s Country Awards for Achievement 2021 for its “industry – leading metrics in many areas.”
In its editorial on the bank, Finance Asia writes, “HDFC Bank continues to achieve industry-leading metrics in many areas and was the clear winner for another year. To put this achievement into perspective, HDFC rakes in half the revenues of industry leader, State Bank of India (SBI), but is one third more profitable. It remains India’s most profitable bank. Indeed that profitability continued apace during the most recent 2021 Financial Year.”
In its latest issue, the magazine writes – “Unsurprisingly, this meant that HDFC continues to trade at a valuation premium that only a very small handful of Asian banks are able to command. As India’s most deadly Covid wave started to settle down in late spring 2021, HDFC was comfortably trading at over four times book value.”
The magazine bestows the recognition on the banks after taking into consideration their performance, vision, and long-term strategy. This year is particularly special since it also marks Finance Asia’s 25th anniversary.
