Products and services[edit]

Corporate and Institutional Banking :
YES BANK deals in corporate investment services. This involves providing, for a fee, financial advice to customers, generally corporate or individual investors.[9]

Commercial Banking:
YES BANK also competes in the South Asian commercial banking market. Commercial banking is essentially the equivalent of retail banking for commercial entities, but is however generally more expensive and accounts yield less interest, since corporate firms don't generally regard earning interest as a major component of their need for banking services.
