"In broking business, we maintained our market share in the high-yield cash segment as we continued to add retail clients at a healthy run rate." "Our asset mobilisation continued at a very strong pace. Expansion of the housing finance network and the loan book is going as per plan. We are working towards our strategic imperative to generate 20 percent ROE on a sustainable basis," he said.
