Mr. Nirmal Jain, Chairman, IIFL Finance Ltd., commented on the financial results: “We had a good quarter with volume growth, falling cost of funds, improving liquidity and control over operating costs. We are working to widen and strengthen our partnerships with banks for co-lending and assignment of loans, as our core strategy. Besides, we have been partnering with several fintechs. The partnership model will help us achieve higher ROEs and lower volatility. The credit demand and improving collection efficiency show clear sign of recovery from Covid and the trend is likely to continue. Nonetheless, we have been conservative in making provisions and ensuring adequate liquidity.”

Gold Loan co-origination
IIFL Finance has partnered with CSB Bank for gold loan co-origination, for sourcing and managing retail gold loan assets. IIFL Finance, acting as Business Correspondent of the Bank, will source new business from markets where CSB Bank does not have adequate branch network. IIFL Finance, with its vast branch network, would help CSB Bank penetrate the lower strata of customers and rural areas, where the Bank currently does not have adequate reach. This arrangement would result in scaling up of the customer base.
