Rakesh Jhunjhunwala's Take On The Current PSU Bank's Frauds

Mar 06, 2018 | 12:19 PM IST

The entire month of February proved to be an overdrawn horror story for our entire country. In particular investors and the public sector banks were the ones who lost the most amount of sleep as a series of scams worth approximately $2.5 billion demolished the entire banking system. Due to the lack of stricter and more accountable regulatory processes in place fraudsters successfully stole massive amounts from different state-run banks. Rakesh Jhunjhunwala also known as the Big Bull of Dalal Street made the following statement at TiE conference, There is no need for more than three PSU banks in the country. Jhunjhunwala also predicted that the privatization of public banks is bound to happen sooner or later. Famous for his stock picks, Rakesh Jhunjhunwala who's an ace investor in the stock market also shared his insights as to how these frauds would affect both the FDI and FII within the Indian financial markets in the medium to long-term. All in all, the recent scams have given a new hope to people who were already in favour of privatization of public banks. Even those people who were not in the favour of privatization, are now seeking stricter actions from the Reserve Bank of India. In the year 1969 nationalization of banks started in India. This was done with the aim of establishing better control over the entire banking system and to improve transparency in loan disbursal as well as deposits. However, nationalized banks have struggled with challenges like weak deposit accumulation, slow loan growth, and NPAs in recent years. On the other hand, private sector banks have fared much better, with a few exceptions wherein some of the private banks sailed through troubled waters.

Speaking at an event organised by Motilal Oswal Securities in 2014, Rakesh Jhunjhunwala said that everybody need not hold on to stocks for a very long time just because Warren Buffett does it. Every stock in life doesnt have to be bought for 40 years. All of us cannot be Mr.Warren Buffett in life, let me tell you. Just because he thinks that every stock should be bought for life does not mean that we should also buy every stock for life, Rakesh Jhunjhunwala said adding, Value investing is also buying a stock, keeping it for 12-18 months and selling it at a handsome rate. Value investing is buying value where it may not (always) be lasting value. That value could be encashed over two or three years. More recently in October 2017, the big bull of Dalal Street shared what sets him apart from ordinary investors. One thing which keeps me apart is that I have got guts.

When I was a young child, he and his friends would drink in the evening and discuss the stock market. I would listen to them and one day I asked him why do these prices fluctuate. He told me to check if there is a news item on Gwalior Rayon in the newspaper, and if there was Gwalior Rayons price would fluctuate the next day, Rakesh Jhunjhunwala told the channel, responding to how he started investing in the stock market. Notably, his portfolio value tops Rs.13,000 crore as of September-17, taking into consideration the listed companies where he holds at least 1% stake.
