‘Highest ever gold loan asset’

“The gold loan asset growth during Q4 FY23 of Rs 5,479 crore was the highest ever in any fourth quarter. The disbursements also stood at a historic high of Rs 51,850 crore. Profit after tax remained steady for the quarter at Rs 903 crore. The increase in Stage 3 assets is purely an accommodation given to customers for a few more months on the back of higher collateral value, and we do not envisage any loss on account of the extended time,” Managing Director George Alexander Muthoot said.

“We have entered into new lending products like small business loans as well as micro-personal loans,” he added.

“We intend to achieve calibrated growth in these new products during FY 24. We also see a revival in disbursements from subsidiaries. Microfinance achieved loan growth of Rs 1,827 crore. The housing finance business achieved loan growth of Rs 28 crore. The vehicle finance business achieved a disbursement of Rs 24 crore in Q4 FY23 as against Rs 20 crore during the nine months of FY23.”
