The author of a book about India’s second largest private bank has described it as “boring and steady.” In a financial institution, that’s a good thing. But under managing director Aditya Puri, who has led HDFC for two decades, there’s been nothing boring about its growth, from a pipsqueak with $40 million in revenues to one of India’s largest banks, with $5.6 billion. It turned those revenues into an impressive $1.9 billion in profits last year. HDFC’s U.S. ADRs enjoyed a 15-year run that took them up a cumulative 2200% before easing off of late.
