Raksha Bandhan Special: Today, on the auspicious occasion of Raksha Bandhan, Zee Business brings to its viewers a special show dedicated to mark this special event. We present two stocks which are identical in a lot of ways and it will not be an exaggeration to dub them as brother-sister sahers. We are referring to Ujjivan Financial Services and Equitas Holdings Ltd. Both these companies are from the same sector which is microfinance lending. Both these companies also have a Small Finance Banks licence.
Focus of both these companies is microfinance lending and group lending. Even the Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs) see the two companies at par with each other. While the FIIs hold around 24 per cent stake in Ujjivan Financial Services, their stake in Equitas Holdings is around 28 per cent.
