Among the private sector banks, KVB gets lower valuations due to its slow adaptation to the latest technology and value added products offerings. Lower liquidity of the stock also affects its market valuations. On the other hand HDFC Bank and ICICI Bank gets premium valuations in the market because of their increasing customer oriented approach, well spread branch network and operational efficiency through technology improvement. These banks are a one-stop shop for all types of financial products. Today the valuations in the banking sector are accorded to stocks, which offer the best services to customers through multi channels and have future growth potential.
