ICICI Securities Report

Home First Finance Company India Ltd., an affordable housing financier with AUM of Rs 39 billion and focus on salaried housing loans, has several value propositions that differentiate it from peers in high growth, high yielding, hugely untapped affordable housing finance segment:

  • 75% customers in EWS/LIC category and 32% being new to credit
  • technology at its core – right from sourcing to collections
  • well-trained/educated team to appropriately assess need and right size loans
  • paperless loan processing with quick TAT of <48 hours
  • omni-channel lead generation driving sourcing

Few risks include:

i) Sourcing as well as collections managed by front-end team;

With >30% AUM growth, funding cost benefit, improved cost to income and contained credit cost, we expect earnings to compound at >40% over FY21-23E.
