Repco Home Finance Ltd. (RHFL) is planning to increase its assets under management (AUM) by 12% to ₹14,000 crore during FY24, said its MD & CEO, K. Swaminathan.
“We were ₹12,449 crore in the beginning of the year. We plan to reach somewhere around ₹14,000 crore by the current year-end,” he said during an analysts call.
While explaining his plan of action for the current fiscal, he said that momentum happens during the second and third quarters. Q2 and Q3 are the normal peak quarters and definitely the book growth also will be more than the 9% over Q1.
Regarding the business outlook for FY24, he said, “We plan to stick to our guidance numbers of 20% growth in sanctions and disbursements and 12% AUM growth from FY23. Gross non-performing asset (NPA) numbers planned to be brought down by at least ₹100 crore, out of which we have already reduced ₹24 crore.”
