Sajjan Jindal’s JSW Group to foray into lending with Rs 400 cr funding in captive NBFC

JSW Group led by Sajjan Jindal is making a foray into lending with funding of up to Rs 400 crore in a non-bank captive lender housed in its e-commerce arm. The Non-Bank Finance Company (NBFC) will be a subsidiary of JSW One Platforms (JSWOP) and will make finance purchases for consumers on the new e-commerce arm.

Finally, the NBFC can also help different group companies such as cements, metals or paints by offering financing options.

Currently, the micro, small and medium enterprises that make up JSWOP’s customer base will not be served by the banking industry more than they should be, and as a result, the $22 billion JSW group felt compelled to enter the region.

JSWOP will make investments of around Rs 350-400 crore in NBFC over the next two years, and the same is part of a total capital funding plan of Rs 4,000 crore set for the e-commerce business by FY27.

Only e-commerce customers will get the financing.

The group has already integrated the money company into JSWOP and named it JSW One Finance, adding that the company will apply to the RBI for a license to work as a non-depository company taking NBFC in the last quarter of FY23. , and hopes to get the regulatory green light in 7 to 9 months after that.

It is common knowledge that virtually every major conglomerate in the measure of JSW Group has an NBFC arm that caters to the funding needs of the availability chains served by individual companies across all industries, whereas in most cases these NBFCs began to come out independently in the market as effectively for non-captive companies.

The NBFC can have up to 200 people working for it and already efforts are underway to build the group and also the tech stack that would be at the heart of operations.

JSWOP will invest up to Rs 200 crore in the logistics component, including that the other pillar of service centers will even require investment in real goods and equipment, but declined to share the amount.

The company is currently working at an annual price of Rs 1,400 crore in gross market value (GMV) of the products offered on the platform, which can reach Rs 3,000 crore by March 2023.

Other key infrastructure companies, in particular Birlas and L&T, have plans or are already working on dedicated e-commerce platforms.

JSWOP currently serves B2B clients in Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Karnataka and Telangana, and will travel to Gujarat and the National Capital Region in the second half of the fiscal year.
