Banking & Financial Services

India has a diversified financial sector, which is undergoing rapid expansion. The sector comprises commercial banks, insurance companies, non-banking financial companies, co-operatives, pension funds, mutual funds and other smaller financial entities. The financial sector in India is predominantly a banking sector with commercial banks accounting for more than 60 per cent of the total assets held by the financial system.
India’s services sector has always served the country’s economy well, accounting for about 57 per cent of the gross domestic product (GDP). In this regard, the financial services sector has been an important contributor.
The Government of India has introduced reforms to liberalise, regulate and enhance this industry. At present, India is undoubtedly one of the world’s most vibrant capital markets. Challenges remain, but the future of the sector looks good. The advent of technology has also aided the growth of the industry. About 75 per cent of the insurance policies sold by 2020 would, in one way or another, be influenced by digital channels during the pre-purchase, purchase or renewal stages, as per a report by Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and Google India.
