The company attributed that the improvements in the margin, growth in revenue, and changes in statutory tax rates resulted in the strong quarterly profits. Its specialised subsidiaries are in the areas of corporate finance, institutional equities, institutional research, retail equities, retail distribution, retail research, equity relationship service and private wealth management.
Vijay Chandok, Managing Director and CEO of ICICI Securities said that this quarter there had been an increase in the number of market participants, although we had strong growth inequities, as well as in retail, HNIs and institutional, wealth and investment banking business. However, debt funds and SIP (systematic investment plan) remained weak as investors were preferring to conserve cash during these uncertain times which slowed down the inflows.
