In a regulatory filing, YES Bank said it "has received an approval from the RBI to sponsor a mutual fund, and to set up an asset management company and a trustee company."
It further said: "In its twelfth year of operation, as YES Bank accelerates into its next phase of growth, this new business initiative will provide further acceleration to YES Bank's differentiated product offerings."
Asset management companies and trustee companies will be wholly owned subsidiaries of YES Bank, it added.
