Intro Bank
The Nifty Bank index extended its second year of underperformance against the market barometers in 2021. Banking stocks put-up a muted show over the last two years due to uncertainty over slippages and asset quality issues of banks during the lockdown. Experts believe that rising credit growth and easing bad loans will improve the prospects of banking stocks in the future. Banking has been the most preferred sector for MFs, accounting for about one-fifth of the industry’s equity AUM (assets under management). Large banks with strong balance sheets and formidable deposit franchises have been the preferred bets for mutual funds.
