Management commentary:

  • Commenting on the Q2 performance, Vijay Chandok, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, said: “Our strategy of broad basing our customer acquisition engine is paying off and I am happy to report highest ever quarterly customer addition yet again this quarter. During the quarter, younger millennials and Gen Z accounted for 65% of new customers (vs 39% a year ago) and those from tier II and below cities are now 84% of new customers (67% last year). We see a long growth runway, given our country’s current position in the financialization journey, expected secular long term GDP growth, large number of youth entering the job market annually and equally large number of retirees with both sets with differential needs.”


  • Continue to See growth in Equity and Distribution Businesses.

  • Expect More headroom for growth in insurance distribution Business.

  • With several initiatives in the Derivatives segment, the management expects market share improvement in the next few quarters.

  • Tie-up with HSBC will take some time to go live, and customer quality will be relatively better than other Banks.

  • MTF (Margin Trading Funding) book has been growing faster, driven by new product launches a few quarters back. ISEC’s market share in the MTF business rose to 21.8% from 17% a year ago.

  • ISEC aspires to reduce the C/I ratio to 40% over the medium term, primarily from operating leverage benefits. In the near term, the C/I ratio may see a marginal increase. Employee cost/revenue is likely to see a 2-3% increase in coming quarters.

  • Incremental market in September was at 12%


ICCI Securities reported strong growth in September quarter led by strong growth across all businesses. The company’s combined (retail + institutional) market share remained stable at 8.9% in the cash segment. The total customers having opted for NEO is 1.5 Lac. The share of NEO to total derivatives volumes is 40%. Instead of seeing it as a mere trading brokerage generator, ISEC believes its NEO customer provides it with a good opportunity for cross-selling multiple products over next the few years.  It is India’s second largest non-bank MF distributor by revenue and assets. Tie-up with HDFC Life and the launch of new loan products, the traction in distribution income is expected to remain strong for the company. The C-I Ratio of the company have increased to 45%. However, with the efforts directed towards controlling fixed costs the management expects the C-I ratio to decline to sub-40% over the medium term which would add the Profitability. At the CMP of Rs. 808, ICICI Securities is trading at PE multiple of 20.7x.  Valuing the company at 17x FY23E EPS, we recommend buy on ICICI Securities at CMP of Rs. 808 for the Target Price of Rs.980.
