Yes Bank managing director and CEO Rana Kapoor, who was present at the India Investor Summit held at the London Stock Exchange (LSE) with Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, said that clearing lingering tax issues was also highlighted during the meet.

"The other points raised were that all the overhang of taxes need to be sorted out once and for all. The renewable energy sector as a sunrise sector in the Indian economy was also discussed widely," he said.

Asked about the general mood among UK-based investors, he added: "The UK investors are still very tentative...until the economy starts picking up, they will remain a little tentative. But overall the FDI (foreign direct investment) investors are far more supportive of investing in India."

Kapoor rang the opening bell at the LSE today to formalise Yes Bank's agreement with the exchange on 'Green Bonds'.

During Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to the UK last November, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the bank and the LSE to develop collaboration around bond and equity issuance, with a particular focus on Green Infrastructure Finance.
