Loan securitisation is a process in which the underlying pool of assets are structured or packaged and sold as financial instruments to investor(s) either directly or through a special purpose vehicle. Typically in India, the originators or sellers are banks, non-banking finance companies, housing finance companies & similar other investors.

Home Credit Group has developed both bricks-and-mortar and online distribution that makes it very attractive to manufacturers and retailers who are seeking a consumer finance partner.
