The past year has been transformative for the company as it became a consolidated subsidiary of Japan’s Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group (SMFG), with SMFG acquiring a 74.9% stake from Fullerton Financial Holdings (FFH). SMFG will eventually acquire a 100% stake.

Speaking on the fundraise, Shantanu Mitra, MD & CEO of Fullerton India, said, “Our FY22 performance echoes our deep commitment to innovate and serve each one of our customers with unique loan offerings, so they can fulfill their financing needs. This funding is fully hedged for foreign currency risks, and it is almost equivalent to the domestic cost of borrowing.”

“The current ECB raised will enable us to diversify our funding base and tap offshore markets to fund future growth plans of the company,” he added.

Over the last few years, Fullerton India has raised funds from various institutions like Asian Development Bank (ADB), International Finance Corporation (IFC), and major Banks in India.
