Along with profitability, our ability to generate strong free cash flows is bolstering our capacity to move forward rapidly and confidently. We anticipate a higher inflow of funds and a steady rise in our AUM in the upcoming quarters due to the economy's broad-based recovery. Our MF Assets are growing at double the rate of the industry on the back of our organic and inorganic strengths."

CEO & Whole-time Director, Mr Shirish Patel, commented, "We are delighted to see Prudent Corporate Advisory Services now get ranked as the second-largest non-banking Mutual Fund Distributor based on Commissions Earned, thanks to the efforts of our channel partners and our team. As per the CAMS December 2022 ranking, we are now the 3rd largest in total AUM in retail and 5th largest in total folios. Thanks to our highly scalable, asset-light, and cash-generative business model, we have shown a consistent record of accomplishment in delivering profitable growth. It's heartening to see our cost-to-income ratio continuously decrease, now at 18.5% for the 9MFY23 period. We have achieved this commendable feat despite expanding our branch count to 121 in FY2023 and increasing our employee count to 1,134."
