    The Muthoot Group eyes on a new Banking Licence.

    The Muthoot Group, with businesses across diverse sectors, has set its eyes on a new banking licence, believing it is well suited for transforming Muthoot Finance, the country’s largest gold loan company, into a bank. The group’s managing director, George Alexander Muthoot, shares his plans with Neelasri Barman. Edited excerpts:

    The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has capped the loan-to-value (LTV) ratio for advances against gold jewellery at 60 per cent and standardised the valuation of the collateral. How much did this impact you?

    Yes, it did impact us. Some of our customers are (now) going to traditional money lenders. We had, with much difficulty, brought them into the organised sector from the unorganised one. Some of them might even go to banks, since the latter don’t have this LTV cap. Being the regulator, we don’t argue with them (RBI). We are waiting for them to probably take a second look at it. We also make requests to them on this; it is for them to decide. The hit we have taken as of date is not major. But if it continues, it can be substantial. We might have lost a little less than 10 per cent of our customers due to this.

    Besides, there are now stringent KYC (know your customer) norms. Did you lose customers because of that?

    Most of these things even we do. The regulations are for the entire spectrum of people and not Muthoot alone. These are good practices, strengthening the sector. In the short term, some pain may be there but in the long term, it will be positive for the sector. In the short term, we may lose some customers to money lenders.

    Did you increase the frequency of gold auctions due to fall in gold prices in the recent past?

    Gold prices fell 35 per cent in the international market. But in the India market, it has been only 11 per cent. We auction the gold only after 18 months, if a loan hasn’t been repaid. Yes, gold auctions have risen from 0.5 per cent of total advances to one per cent.

    Has the competition increased, with many banks venturing aggressively into this business?

    Outside South India, the concept of organised gold loans is not there. In the past 10 years, we have spent crores of rupees in advertising the concept of gold (as collateral for a loan). It has benefited us, and other non-banking finance firms; it is also benefiting banks. Since more banks are getting into this business, the respectability of taking a gold loan has increased. This is a positive side. The negative side is that any new player coming in will certainly take some of our share. We have a gold loan portfolio of about Rs 25,000 crore. We continue to be the largest. For us, new markets for gold loans are also emerging. In the next two quarters, we expect this portfolio of ours to be flat, since the total economic activity is also taking a hit. After that, probably, things should improve.

    What are your fund raising plans in the current financial year?

    Next Monday, we are coming with a public issue of non-convertible debentures (NCDs). This will be for working capital. The tenure of the debentures vary from one to six years. The coupon rate varies from 10.50 per cent to 12 per cent. This year, including this issue, we would have raised about Rs 1,000 crore through NCDs. Currently, since there is not much growth in assets, we do not need too much of funds. But we might do two more NCD issues in the current financial year.

    You have applied for a bank licence. Have you appointed a consultant for the ground work?

    We do not need a consultant. We feel we are well suited for transforming Muthoot Finance into a bank. We are the largest in the gold finance business. The next level should be a bank. If it is a bank, the liability options will be much more. My cost of funds can come down. Then, even my lending cost will come down and the people whom I serve currently will get the benefit of loans at lower costs.

    The average lending rate is currently 19.2 per cent. Currently, my average cost of funds is 12.5-13 per cent. We already have a platform ready for banking. This includes IT, treasury management, risk management, personnel and branches with large reach. We are doing financial inclusion work, the key word for new banking licences. We may just have to tweak a few things for the banking business.

    What is the progress you have made in your plans to set up white-label ATMs?

    We only need to get the last sanction from RBI and then will start rolling out white-label ATMs in our branches and other strategic places. It gels with our business. The approval may come this year itself.

    The objective of the initiative is to provide the underprivileged kids an overall growth in 5 key areas: (1) Right to Education, (2) Promoting Better Health & Hygiene, (3) Ensuring the Right to Play, (4) Promoting Gender Inclusion & Empowerment and (5) Developing youth as Community Leaders.  The initiative, managed by our NGO partner Magic Bus, will directly benefit 1000 under-privileged children from Latma, Hatma, Ghagra, Harmu and Jorar villages of Jharkhand.

     

    Speaking on the initiative, Avinav Chaubey (AGM-Marketing, Muthoot Group) said:Education is essential for a child's development, to ensure that young people make the right choices from childhood all the way through to gainful employment. One of our social purposes is to make significant contributions towards an equitable and sustainable society and we aim to do this by imparting and enhancing the quality of education among the lesser privileged children and thus, catalysing systemic change in the society. I am glad we are doing our part in creating awareness and empowering the child in the Jharkhand region which has low literacy rate.

     

    Magic Bus will be imparting training programs for two weeks on a rotational basis for each of the 5 key areas eg: in the first two weeks of August, Magic Bus will focus to instill ‘Right to Education’ objective among the children and community members. After two weeks, ‘Promoting better health and hygiene’ objective among the children and community members will be instilled and so forth. Thus, the aim towards each quarter will be to ensure all the 5 objectives are instilled/taught among the children and community members.

     

    The event kick-started by Smt. Vandana Dadel and Mr. Avinav Chaubey (AGM-Marketing, Muthoot Group), witnessed a football match between the Magic Bus children. The launch also witnessed a cultural performance by the Magic Bus children.

    Since its inception in 1939, Muthoot Finance has brought thousands of rural and semi-urban Indians into the banking net for the very first time by venturing into the last mile of the remotest rural areas of India. It is one of the first Indian companies to consider thousands of rural Indians as perfectly bankable even before the term ‘financial inclusion’ was coined. A pioneer in the Non-Banking Financial Company (NBFC) sector, it has been successful in making the unorganized sector into an organized sector and thus, saving the rural masses from the clutches of local money lenders. With a customer base of over 6 million and serving around 80,000 customers every day who seek loan against gold ornaments, Muthoot Finance has changed the concept of gold loan from a ‘last resort’ or ‘desperate loan’ option to a ‘lifestyle banking product’. It has made gold jewellery, which was considered to be a static asset and kept in the lockers of the houses few years back, an economically productive asset and an economy driver. The massive branch expansion has also led to a lot of employment opportunities in Tier II, III & IV cities.

George Alexander Muthoot elaborated on the topic by explaining the benefits of sound Corporate Governance in family businesses by citing examples of various Indian and International family businesses that have benefited by corporate governance and grown in their respective industries.His speech talked about the stats that prove that in USA, around 5.5 million family businesses contribute to 57% of the GDP of the Country and employ 63% of the Country's workforce. Few examples of such giants are Wal-Mart, Ford, Carrefour, BMW, Samsung & Motorola.

    He talked about his family business, Muthoot Finance Ltd., which is an NBFC that extends credit against the security of Gold mainly to households and small businesses. He took the gathering through the journey of the Company and how through continuous efforts, they have extended their presence to areas where access to organized credit facilities were limited or nil. Even though there are quite a few techies and young entrepreneurs using the Company's services, as a lender to the common man, it is essential that the Company remain continually sensitive to their changing needs and plan how best to secure the interests of shareholders, customers, employees and host community without jeopardizing any party's interests. He declared that the best tool at their disposal for securing sound business practices to achieve these ends is Corporate Governance.

    He also mentioned that Innovation at any dynamic organization is a daily affair, and Corporate Governance is a facilitating factor in achieving this. Corporate mis-governance on the other hand, has resulted in the failure of large companies across the world. Unless the corporates are themselves focused on ensuring good governance, no regulator can assure the compliance of this in spirit. Only consistently good governance can build a credible brand and earn good valuation in the stock market. Sustained growth can only be nurtured in an atmosphere of trust among the stake holders which can only be ensured through sound corporate governance.

    He said that corporate governance in family businesses helps them to invite investment and talent, decide on right roles, evaluate performance & strategies, assure objectivity, continuity and fair play while ensuring stakeholders' interests and also help in effective succession planning. This adds values to the business and also maintains family harmony.

    He concluded by saying that ultimately, the governance norms set by Family or Public companies have to be evaluated against its efficacy in achieving its objectives. If the norms facilitate the Board to achieve corporate objectives, the company has sound governance policies but otherwise, the organization must introspect on the necessity for change and bring in better practices.
