Investment Rationale

Although recent capital-raising is a positive, the brokerage is underweight on the stock due to uncertain asset quality outlook. India's macro outlook remains difficult given muted economic growth, said Morgan Stanley. This, amid RBL's high exposure of to BBB and below rated corporates, implies high risk of continued elevated slippages, the brokerage said.
