The Rebirth of CARE Ratings Limited

“The domestic fundamentals are showing gradual improvement and the private investment is expected to revive with capacity utlisation level inching towards 75%. However, India’s economy needs to brace up for prevailing headwinds in the form of slowing global growth, high inflation and tighter liquidity for a major part of the current financial year. The global uncertainties, high commodity prices and rising interest rates would be dampening factors for investor sentiments. This notwithstanding, our initial ratings business witnessed good growth from the bank loan ratings and securitization segments.”

– Mehul Pandya, Managing Director & CEO
