SKS raises Rs 354 crore by securitisation
SKS Microfinance, the country's only listed microfinace institution (MFI), has raised Rs 354 crore through securitisation. This amount was raised through a public sector bank. However, the company declined to reveal the name citing “non-disclosure agreement”.

Securitisation is the process of pooling different assets together, on hopes that investors buy a pool of assets rather than individual one. This process helps in liquidity as it encourages small investors to purchase shares in the larger asset pool.


The financial officer of SKS said that the company has plans to close another deal before March 31, for around Rs 250 crore.

The company stated the pool was well diversified, with an average loan amount of Rs 10,717. The deal is rated A1+(SO) by credit rating agency CARE Ratings.

The shares of the company on Tuesday were trading at Rs 125.75 up Rs 3.85 or 3.16%.
