StoxBox on Shriram Finance Q4 FY24

The recent introduction in the head index, Shriram Finance Ltd. came out with a healthy set of numbers during the quarter with strong growth in net profit and decent improvement in operational metrics. Net interest income came above street expectations as there was good growth in the AUM of key segments. Even in the elevated interest rate environment, the company showcased a growth in NIMs as the cost ratios improved, aided by expansion in the branch network. As the interest rate cycle is at its peak, we feel that the NBFC is placed well for future growth as cost of funds will likely decrease further. Also, the company’s focus on digital presence through its ‘Shriram One’ app will help in increasing its geographical presence and AUM growth. Hence, we remain positive on the company’s medium to long term growth prospects.
