Rajeev Agrawal of DoorDarshi Advisors presented his in-depth investment thesis on CSB Bank (India: CSBBANK) at Asian Investing Summit 2023.

Thesis summary:

CSB Bank is an old private sector bank in India that is getting transformed under the new oversight of Fairfax (and its leader Prem Watsa). Bank is selling at <9x price to earnings, 1.6x price to book with a strong 20% ROE and 2% ROA. Bank has a strong asset quality and sufficient provision with Gross NPA (Non-Performing Assets) of 1.5% and Net NPA of 0.4%. Lastly, the high growth prospects of the bank of 20%+ over the foreseeable future can be more than adequately funded by very strong capital adequacy (CAR of 25.8% and CET1 of 24.3%) ensuring that all growth of the bank translates into returns for the existing shareholders.
