YES BANK

(India)

Mr. Rana Kapoor is the Founder & CEO of YES BANK, India’s fifth largest private-sector bank. His vision of building the finest quality bank of the world in India by 2020 has seen YES BANK emerge as a high quality, state-of-the-art institution.

Under his leadership, YES BANK was recently recognized as the “Bank of the Year - India” by The Banker magazine, London, part of the Financial Times group UK, and has also become one of the youngest banks to be featured in Forbes Global 2000 list.

An innovator and a pioneer, Mr. Kapoor, has in many ways redefined banking by employing ‘knowledge’ as a key differentiator in the financial services sector. He started YES BANK through a differentiated knowledge-driven approach with a special focus on the sunrise sectors of India, such as food & agribusiness (F&A), healthcare, education, infrastructure, hospitality, media & entertainment and renewable energy.

He is also one of the first true champions of the cause of 'Responsible Banking' in India, where the concepts of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Sustainability are integrated in Business Focus.
