The license will also allow YES BANK to raise FCY funding through MTNs & other routes as appropriate, added further.
Commenting on the approval Rana Kapoor, Managing Director & CEO, YES BANK said "This is a significant development in the overall augmentation of YES BANK's business model and will help in further diversification and expansion of cross border asset products as well as widen the scope and depth of our liabilities base"
