2 Excludes analyst consensus expectations for ‘HDFC AMC’ and ‘India and China life’. This is to align the basis of the consensus for Group AUMA and net flows with the way in which we will report these measures in our Full Year Results 2018. ‘HDFC AMC’ and ‘India and China life’ are no longer being included in our AUMA and flows disclosures in order to improve the alignment of assets and revenue margins disclosures and simplify our reporting.
