AU Small Finance Bank has recently transitioned from a prominent, retail focused non-banking finance company (NBFC), which primarily served low and middle-income individuals and businesses that have limited or no access to formal banking and finance channels. The company operates in three business lines: vehicle finance; micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) loans; and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) loans. Prior to the conversion into the bank, the company was categorized as a “Systemically Important, Non-Deposit Accepting Asset Finance Company” (NBFC-ND-AFC) by the Reserve Bank of India.
The company received a license from the RBI to set up a ‘small finance bank’ (SFB) on December 20, 2016 and it is the only NBFC categorized as an asset finance company to obtain such license. Going forward, it intends to expand and strengthen its business model to offer a diverse suite of banking products and services by leveraging its asset-based lending strengths, existing customer base and cost efficient, technology driven hub-and-spoke branch operating model to create a successful new SFB. It believes that transitioning to an SFB offers it significant growth potential and it aims to be a retail focused, preferred trusted SFB offering integrated and tailored solutions to customers.
