Recognizing the key role played by the sector, we are pleased to present the 10th edition of “India’s Leading BFSI Companies”. The first edition, released in 2008, profiled 223 companies with an aggregate total revenue of Rs. 5.6 trillion. A decade later, the 2018 edition featured 334 companies with more than 4 times increase in the total revenue to Rs. 23.3 trillion. The BFSI sector has evolved over this period to a more agile and technology-driven sector. In the next 12-24 months, there are three actions that the sector needs to execute: extending the reach of the organised BFSI sector towards full financial inclusion, tackling poor asset quality, and recapitalization of struggling public sector banks. We are hopeful that some of the recent initiatives taken by the RBI and the Government will help the BFSI sector and make it stronger”.
