AU Small Finance Bank now among the top 20 NBFCs by market capitalisation
Within three days of listing, the market capitalisation of AU Small Finance Bank (AU SFB), which got converted from a non-banking finance company to a bank only in April 2017, is larger than PSU banks such as IDBI Bank, Union Bank, Dena Bank and Bank of India, among others, and old private sector banks such as South Indian Bank and Karur Vysya Bank.
Given that only recently it got converted from an NBFC to a bank, if a comparison is made with NBFCs then AU SFB is now among the top 20 NBFCs in terms of market capitalisation, according to data provided by Capitaline and based on data from the BSE.
In m-cap terms, the new bank is now bigger than many housing finance companies (Dewan Housing Finance, Gruh Finance, recently-listed Hudco), big brokerages turned NBFCs (Edelweiss Financial, Motilal Oswal Financial and IIFL Holdings).
The bank had made the third-biggest debut of 2017 on the bourses on July 10, following stellar listings of Avenue Supermarts and CDSL.
The bank’s stock had listed at a premium of 48 per cent (₹530) and closed up 48.5 per cent (₹531.5) compared to the issue price of ₹358 on the NSE. The stock has further gained 30 per cent in just three trading sessions and is now up 93 per cent since listing. It hit a new high of ₹698.95 on Thursday.
The reason for the huge interest in the stock is due to the strength in the overall markets and huge oversubscription during the IPO. On Thursday, benchmark indices closed at a new high. The BSE IPO index was up 1.97 per cent.
NBFCs, in general, are in demand as interest rates are expected to be benign going ahead and they will be big beneficiaries. Also, many of the NBFCs are in affordable housing, which offers tremendous opportunity. On Thursday, companies such as Cholamandalam Investment & Finance, Bajaj Finserv, Bajaj Finance, Edelweiss, Bharat Financial Inclusion, LICHFL, Indiabulls Housing Finance, Gruh Finance, L&T Finance Holdings, and M&M Financial Services gained between 1-5 per cent.
At the current market price, AU Small Finance Bank trades at 7.7 times price to FY19 estimated book value, which is much steeper than that of large NBFCs or even banks.
Consolidated Loans With Bad Credit – Reducing and Getting Rid of Them
People take loans to fulfil their financial requirements which could be of either their needs or sometimes for their luxury and leisure purposes. It is easy to accumulate debt by taking loans or making expenditure using the credit card, which is another kind of loan. When the person who has taken the loan is not able to pay off the loan debts, sometimes they will go for getting a Consolidated Debt Loan, which helps him get rid of the old consolidated loans.
Consolidated debt loans are quite helpful in paying the excess loans they have acquired because the interest rate charged on them is low as compared to other loans. But, having the low rate of interest doesn’t mean that one is no more under the debt. He has to pay the consolidated debt which he has taken to pay the older ones.
When the person is not able to pay the Consolidated Debt Loan availed for paying the older consolidated loans on time, he is considered to ruin his credibility or lost his credibility, in the form of his credit score.
The Credit Score can be considered as one’s reputation, his worthiness; and having a bad credit means forming a bad image of oneself. Whenever a person looks towards getting a loan, he approaches the lender. A lender would always check for the person’s debt amount and also his credit score. The Credit score can reflect the amount that you have as debt compared to the amount limit of your credit. Reaching closer to the credit limit of your credit card diminishes your credit score.
With a lower credit score it becomes hard to get consolidated debt loans; and even if one gets it, it would be with higher rates of interest. Higher interest rates on the loans would lead one getting over-burdened with bad debts because it gets hard to pay loans with higher interest rates.
When one is unable to pay the Consolidated Debt Loan, the credibility of a person decreases, and it is called as the ‘Consolidated Debt Loan with Bad Credit’.
Having a bad credit on the already taken loan to pay off the older debts would prove to be unfruitful in case one is thinking about taking another loan to pay it off. Since there are no more options that can be thought about, we are providing you with some which could help in paying off the bad credit consolidated debt loan and improve the credibility.
– Reducing Unnecessary Expenditure:
In such as case, it is advisable that a person reduces the unnecessary expenditure that he incurs. Try spending on the things which are of utmost necessity. This will help in saving a good amount of money every month, which could be used in paying the debt.
– Paying High EMI:
An EMI refers to your monthly repayments. Once a person has stopped making an unnecessary expenditure, he will make a good amount of savings. It becomes possible to pay a higher amount of EMI per month which would incur the low amount of interest at the end of the loan payment. Paying the lower EMI’s would not be that much helpful.
– Debt-Income Comparison:
It should be necessary that one makes a comparison between the Debt and his Income, so that it becomes easier to know as for how much can one afford to pay for the debt. The estimate usually proves to be helpful in knowing the amount and time that would take to pay off the bad debt.
– Availing Home Equity Loan:
Since one is not able to avail any other kind of loan to pay the debts, it can be worth considering a mortgage on one’s house to avail an amount, which would help in paying off the debt and improve your credibility. In future, if you need some loan, having improved your credibility would surely help.
