Every Rs 100 Invested in Titan in 2002 Multiplied 330 Times by 2019

Co-head of Research, Tanushree Banerjee believes the opportunities in the Rebirth of India are not only more profitable than the ones in 2002 but the gains could come faster too.

Here's what she wrote in one of the editions of The 5 Minute WrapUp...

  • Titan entered the branded jewellery market in 1996.

    The retailer faced the challenge of breaching a well-entrenched network of family jewellers. The relationship between customer and family jewellers went back to a couple of generations.

    The habit of buying from the family jeweller was strong and the trust was intrinsic. One also had the option of returning old jewellery to the family jeweler.

    Through its jewellery brand, Tanishq, Titan broke down the early entry barriers in unorganized jewellery retailing. It consolidated its lead as very few national or branded players threw their hats in the ring.

She is on the hunt for the next set of Titan, HDFC Bank, Bajaj Finance, Asian Paints-like companies. These will be the companies that would catalyze the transformation she calls the Rebirth of India.
