ICICI Securities Report

Suryoday Small Finance Bank Ltd. is among the leading small finance banks in India in terms of profitability – delivering more than 2% return on asset in FY19-FY20, supported by cost efficiency (cost / assets at less than 5.5% in FY21) and higher net interest margins.

Strong business growth with advances / deposits delivering 39% / 63% compound annual growth rate between FY18-FY21, even during the transition phase, and ~80% retail deposits as at March 2021 speaks of superior execution.

Though the bank’s retail asset journey has gone through its learning curve, better-quality growth is likely in the foreseeable future, driven by:

  1. revamped business architecture with separate collection team,

  2. stringent credit underwriting, and

  3. focus on small-ticket secured loans in segments like small commercial vehicle, affordable housing, etc.
