ICICI and HDFC Bank knock trust of reigning giant SBI

Mumbai: 9th March, 2016: The Indian economy has struggled to gain the trust of customers lost by the words of policymakers that have not translated into action of borrowers. Despite this there is a sense of optimism that stems from the 23 out of 27 banks that have risen in trust ranks according to The Brand Trust Report 2016 launched by TRA (formerly Trust Research Advisory). The Indian multinational banking and financial services company ICICI Bank (All-India Rank 10) tops the list for the first time as India’s Most Trusted Bank. ICICI Bank leaps 38 ranks from its previous years’ ranking to beat the government-owned corporation – State Bank of India (All-India Rank 23) who reigned this sector for the past five years. Another astonishing fact is the giant leap of 329 ranks taken by HDFC Bank (All-India Rank 12), making it the 2nd Most Trusted bank and listing it in the All-India Top 20 Most Trusted Brands. A bank to watch out for is IDBI Bank with its consistently rising trust ranking every year from All-India Rank 208 in 2011 to All-India Rank 63 in 2016.

Commenting on this, N. Chandramouli, CEO, TRA stated, “This rising trust in banks is a lead indicator for business momentum. The banking sector has been trying to connect with the interests of their customers in order to garner trust. In this the private banks have gained great momentum over the State – owned SBI. On the contrary, SBI’s comparatively lower ranking this year calls for the bank to strengthen their communication strategy and get its brand act together. The ripple effects of this could help the PSU giant revitalize its trust.”

The other banks that feature among the top 10 banks are Kotak Mahindra Bank (All-India Rank 66), Yes Bank (All-India Rank 99), HSBC (All-India Rank 106), Axis Bank (All-India Rank 113), Punjab National Bank (All-India Rank 122) and Bank of India (All-India Rank 172). Whereas Axis Bank (All-India Rank 113), UCO Bank (All-India Rank 554), Union Bank of India (All-India Rank 643) and Standard Chartered (All-India Rank 946) have fallen in their All-India Rank.

These revelations are the result of The Brand Trust Report 2016, the sixth in its series. It is the result of comprehensive primary research conducted on the proprietary 61-Attribute Trust Matrix of TRA (formerly known as Trust Research Advisory). This year’s study involved 18,000 hours of fieldwork covering 2500 consumer-influencers across 16 cities in India and generated 6 million data-points and 20,000 unique brands from which the top 1000 brands have been listed in this year’s report. The 200 page, hardbound report is available for Rs. 14000/-.

Ahmedabad, India, 9th March, 2016: A recently released study by Mumbai-based TRA (formerly Trust Research Advisory) The Brand Trust Report, India Study has been released for 2016. The report features eight category leaders from Gujarat. AMUL (All India 41st Rank), the pride of Gujarat, has been listed as India’s Most Trusted Dairy-Diversified (F&B) brand. It also holds its pride by being the only reigning brand in the Butter Sub-Category, bringing home ‘The taste of India’. Fogg (All India 67th Rank) leads in the Deo/Perfume Category followed by Axe and Wildstone. Sintex (All-India 214th Rank) leads as India’s Most Trusted Brand in the Manufacturing-Diversified Category. While Astral Pipes (All India 870th Rank) is the Most Trusted Brand in Pipes Category. Ajanta (All India 282th Rank) is a forerunner in the Home Care Category and correspondingly is the leader in the Clocks Sub-Category. Yet another brand from the region, Symphony (All-India 579th Rank) has been ranked as the Most Trusted Brand in the Coolers Sub–Category of the Durable list.

Gujarat’s love for food is reflected in the number of brands in the F&B Category. This has subsequently boosted the ratings of the Category and has made it the largest in Gujarat.

Vadilal (All-India 277th Rank) ice cream is India’s Most Trusted ice cream brand and is followed by Havmor, Creambell among others.

The pro-active and walk-the-talk approach of the region truly represents the future of India and epitomizes development in its complete strength.” said N. Chandramouli, CEO, TRA.
