Corporate Profile

Ujjivan Small Finance Bank, promoted by Ujjivan Financial Services Ltd focuses on the mass market and caters to unserved and an underserved segment of India. It provides small loans and financial services to those who are not adequately served by the financial institutions. It heavily relies on technology to reduce its costs and improve efficiency. It is spread across 24 states and unions with a wide customer base of 4.9 Million.

Business and Financial Highlights

Looking at the Bank’s key ratios, Cost to Income ratio has been constantly decreasing and now currently stands at 66.95% which is a good sign. Its Net interest margins have been stable at around 10.64% and have not seen any significant expansion. Casa ratio at 11.87% is poor when compared to its peers which lead to higher cost of funds

 The bank’s deposit/AUM ratio has improved to 78% on strong TD growth but the CASA profile remains abysmally low at 12% (9% of AUM) vs. peers range of 20-35% (12-25% of AUM), mainly due to its early-stage flawed liability strategy focusing on MFI customers for liability.

The bank still carries portfolio concentration risk with MFI being 79% of loans, which has its own set of credit risk and cycles. The bank has gradually diversified into other products (SME, Housing, etc.) and recently into crop/allied loans for small/marginal farmers.
