As part of its commitments, the bank has set a target of incremental lending of Rs 300 bn over the next 5 years, under wholesale banking towards pertinent sectors included in its Sustainable Financing Framework (SFF).

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) is a measure which investors use as a tool to assess how good the practices of a company are. For the last 3-4 years, the words sustainability and ESG have made people sensitive about the whole idea of a sustainable planet.

Rajesh Dahiya, Executive Director (Corporate Centre), Axis Bank said,

  • The bank's existing wholesale banking portfolio towards SFF, including green and social sectors, is little over Rs 290 bn and it intends to lend to companies where there are green practices.

Speaking of stocks, here's a pattern that if you see, you must sell your position. After all, exits are more important than entries.

In the chart below, we can see the head and shoulder pattern - the stock goes up, makes a high, falls a little bit, goes up to a higher high, does not make a higher low, rallies again, fails to make a new high, and then starts to break down.

This usually happens in a situation where a stock or index has typically been in a bull trend for a while. Spotting this correctly can help you save money.
