One of the leading NBFCs, IIFL Finance has bagged a mega deal on Thursday with Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA) to invest a massive 2,200 crore for the purchase of 20 stake in the wholly-owned subsidiary IIFL Home Finance. ADIA will invest in IIFL Home Finance through its wholly-owned subsidiary.

In its statement, IIFL Finance said this would be one of the largest equity investments in the affordable housing finance segment in India by a financial investor.

IIFL Home Finance has proposed to use the additional capital to continue its granular expansion strategy into new markets to address the significant and growing demand for housing loans.

Nirmal Jain, Founder, IIFL Group said, “We are delighted to partner with ADIA who bring to the table long-term commitment and rich experience of supporting growing businesses. The investment recognizes IIFL Home Finance’s position as one of India’s largest providers of affordable housing loans and how well it is placed to continue to target the large, resilient housing finance market.”

Hamad Shahwan Aldhaheri, Executive Director of the Private Equities Department at ADIA said, “IIFL Home Finance has already established itself as one of India’s leading technology-enabled mortgage lenders. This investment aims to support the company for its next phase of growth, as it meets the significant demand in India’s large, under-served and fast-growing affordable housing finance market.”

IIFL Home Finance offers small-ticket housing loans, loans against property, and construction finance.

Monu Ratra, CEO, of IIFL Home Finance, said, “IIFL Home Finance has built a strong foundation and is at an inflection point as it leverages new strategies such as co-lending, foraying into more granular products, and expanding reach across Tier II and Tier III regions. We welcome our new partners and look forward to working with them in the next phase.”
