HDFC and ICICI are major financial and banking services organizations in India. HDFC stands for Housing Development Finance Corporation and ICICI is the Industrial Credit and Investment Corporation of India. It was in the 1990s that the government of India decided upon a policy of liberalization under the leadership of Narsimha Rao. This policy allowed private banks to become established in India although small in number. The first among these banks was Global Trust Bank after which various others like Axis Bank, HDFC Bank and ICICI Bank emerged. This gave a boost to the banking sector in India..

56

ICICI has been notorious in employing goons for recovering its loans from defaulters and has been pulled by different courts and consumer forums in this regard. As far as differences between the two banks are concerned, both are equally popular employing cutting edge technologies though ICICI seems to be ahead in aggressive branding having Amitabh Bachchan as its brand ambassador.

The times have never been more challenging for the top two private sector banks ICICI Bank and HDFC Bank.

The recent interest rate hike by the RBI indicates that the going can be much tougher in the coming quarters. ET Intelligence Group compares the performance of both banks and evaluates the prospects of investing in them.

PERFORMANCE HDFC Bank reported over 30 per cent y-o-y growth in net profit in the June '08 quarter. The stability in earnings growth of HDFC Bank is much higher than that of ICICI Bank. The gap in the profit growth between the two banks was not high till the March '08 quarter. But ICICI started showing signs of a slowdown in its retail loan book in the March '08 quarter itself. This was evident as HDFC Bank posted a growth of 39 per cent in its retail advances in FY08, while ICICI managed to grow its retail advances by only 15 per cent (before securitization). This shows that only better expense management helped ICICI to post high profit growth in the quarter ended March '08.
