Fino-Paytech Bank first became profitable in the fourth quarter of financial year 2020 and have been profitable in subsequent quarterly periods.

They operate an asset light business model that principally relies on fee and commission based income generated from the merchant network and strategic commercial relationships. Each merchant serves the banking and financial needs of its community, which in turn forms the backbone of the assisted-digital ecosystem, referred to as the “phygital” delivery model (i.e., a combination of physical and digital). The merchant’s use of technology and the use of analytics on the data that they capture enhances the merchant’s ability to cross sell the third party products that they also offer, to the existing customers, thereby increasing the potential revenue and opportunity to further customize the products and services offering. Such a merchant-led distribution model requires minimal capital expenditure cost because the on-boarding and setup capital expenditure costs are borne by the merchant, and accordingly, allows for operating leverage and efficient expansion in a timely manner. Through the “phygital” delivery model the merchants on-board customers and facilitate transactions, ensuring the network grows and the products and services are more accessible to a broader range of customers throughout India, giving Fino-Paytech Bank what they believe to be is a significant advantage compared to the competitors.
