Comments by HDFC Securities
HDFC Securities said, "We have envisaged a rise of 19% CAGR for both topline and bottom line over FY21-24E. The operating margin is estimated to grow to 54.6% in FY24E compared to the current 35%. Market share trend both in the equity and debt segment will be the key thing to watch out for. The company has been constantly paying healthy dividends to its shareholders. Yield compression due to high competition despite the higher share of equity in total AUM should start to recover or strong inflow could set off the impact."
