“We have started off 2022 extremely well with a host of new initiatives in the pipeline that will further benefit our clients. I will continue to open pathways for growth previously out of reach to private banks.”
The bank has given an average of 13.5 per cent annual yield across private debt investments, including in sustainable energy & infrastructure, for clients between February 2021 and February 2022, the statement further said. Advisory mandate portfolios generated clients up to 20 per cent yield for 2021.
