The custody service provider has changed significantly over the period with the substantial changes coming with the introduction of new age technology, newer offerings, globalization and changes in norms. This helped custodians to adapt to it and provide better outcomes by increasing their efficiency & services along with mitigating risk on a timely basis.
The Indian custody services market has seen rapid growth from the last two decades. The AUC for the Indian market increased 36 times at a CAGR of 22 percent from FY02 (INR 3 trillion) to FY20 (INR 97 trillion). However, the market is still less than 2 percent of the total global custody market. In comparison, India’s share in global GDP is about 3.5 percent, thus implying that the country’s AUC market has a significant room to grow.
As the Indian capital market matures and attracts investments, its share in the global custody market is expected to increase. A major chunk of contribution comes from the FPI, MF, Insurance company, FDI, Banks, Pension Funds, Foreign Depository & others. The India’s overall growth in the next decade will be major booster for this sector and attract major investor to invest heavily in this part of the world and add more value to its pool & this can be deciphered from the colossal growth of Orbis & its peers in last couple of years.
