Srei Infra to transfer lending assets to Srei Equipment

Srei Equipment

Srei Infrastructure Finance Limited said it has decided to consolidate all its lending business into its wholly owned subsidiary Srei Equipment.

According to a statement by Srei, the proposed step, apart from cost efficiency, will create room for the lending entity, Srei Equipment, to attract strategic investors and also prepare the company for conversion into a bank, as and when the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) permits.

Srei Infrastructure Finance will remain the holding company for Srei Equipment Finance. The consolidation will also enhance customer experience, bring in economies of scale, allow the companies to offer their services at competitive rates and provide greater flexibility in accessing capital, the company release stated.
