Yes Bank: Competitive Strategy of a Late Entrant
Understand the competitive strategy adopted by a late entrant into the Indian banking sector
YES BANK (Yes Bank), one of the new generation private sector banks, was set up in India after reforms were introduced in the banking sector in the 1990s. Yes Bank entered the market in late 2004 when the banking space in India was already overcrowded with a number of public sector banks, private sector banks, and co-operative banks. Foreign multinational banks, which were growth-constrained, were also waiting eagerly for the sector to open up further in 2009 to make a major foray into this emerging market. However, despite being a late entrant, Yes Bank drew the attention of its competitors and analysts by the speed at which it grew and by increasing its operations throughout the country.
The case will help the students to:
Q1. Understand the competitive strategy adopted by a late entrant into the Indian banking sector

Q3. Understand how technology can be a source of competitive advantage and how Yes Bank used it to turn its late entry into an advantage

Q5. Understand the nature of the banking system in an emerging market which is on the verge of a transition.
