"One of the strengths and differentiating features of Yes Bank is its knowledge banking approach. Our approach is service-oriented; we offer what is missing in the marketplace. We offer choice and convenience to customers (to enhance their banking experience)."1

-Rana Kapoor, Founder, Managing Director and CEO, YES BANK.

"[Rana Kapoor's] aim is to break the stereotype image of banks and bankers. There is, of course, all the seriousness that goes with managing other people's money. Prudent management, new technology, skilled people. Good corporate governance, top quality service. Plenty of social involvement. But there is also an emphasis on conveying the message that banking is not merely a set of cold hi-tech assemblages and serious-looking bankers."2

-The Week3, May 22, 2005.

Saying Yes to Differentiation

In December 2006, YES BANK (Yes Bank) was rated the third best bank in India by BusinessWorld4 in its annual survey of listed public and private sector banks in the country.

It was also ranked second among the new private sector banks in the Financial Express-Ernst & Young5 survey of India's best banks for the year 2006 published on March 28, 2007.

Yes Bank had experienced unprecedented growth in the Indian banking sector since it started operations in late 2004. This was a significant achievement for a bank which had started late when compared to other new age private sector banks.

When Yes Bank announced its decision to enter the Indian banking space in the mid-2000s, industry watchers were skeptical about the move as they felt that the market was already overcrowded. But soon after starting operations, the bank caught the attention of analysts as well as its competitors with its highly differentiated strategy.
