According to HDFC Securities, "ICICIBC is on track to achieve a 15% RoE by FY23 due to improving overall performance. With rising impetus on its bank tech initiatives to achieve incremental growth, we turn more constructive on the loan growth forecasts for FY23 and FY24, since we expect ICICIBC to expand market share."
