Digital focus gains
Nimesh Shah, MD & CEO, ICICI Prudential AMC, said, “We believe that the strong growth in folio numbers in the last financial year is largely a result of our relentless digital focus, increased level of investor awareness and our ability to create a niche for itself. The past two decades have provided a superior investment experience across different market cycles and asset classes (Business Cycle and Asset Classes). Not even once has the company made any default. This has increased investor confidence, which is playing a vital role in attracting new customers to the company.
