“Due to Covid, many branches were either not functional or only partially functional leading to decline in new customer acquisitions. Borrowers also withdrew collateral due to Covid stress. Proportion of high LTV (loan to value) portfolio (over 80 per cent) has come down to 6 per cent. It has reduced due to better risk management prices of gold declined by 17 per cent from peak leading to some borrowers withdrawing collateral,” the corporate stated.
Analysts at Motilal Oswal Financial Services, nevertheless, say commentary from the gold finance NBFC suggests a robust uptick in demand and new buyer acquisitions in Jul’21, which seems to have sustained in Aug-MTD’21 as properly. “MGFL’s shorter tenure gold mortgage product (three months v/s the trade common of 6–12M) has led to increased auctions and withdrawals from prospects, leading to sustained decline in gold AUM/holdings over the past two quarters,” it stated in a outcome replace.
Although MGFL has traded off progress, we derive nice consolation in its standalone asset high quality (which was flat QoQ), particularly within the context of its >80 per cent LTV mortgage portfolio declining to round 6 per cent in 1QFY22. Over the medium time period, we anticipate MGFL to ship round 15 per cent steady-state gold mortgage progress.
