GetVantage secures NBFC licence: Key Points

  • Founder and CEO Bhavik Vasa said the licence “reinforces our commitment to providing innovative and accessible financing solutions to the emerging SME sector in India.”
  • The addition of NBFC will not only enhance the revenue pipeline of the three-year-old FinTech but also allow the co-investment feature with other financial institutions such as banks, NBFCs, and debt funds. Moreover, it will enable GetVantage to serve clients directly instead of solely operating as a loan service provider (LSP).
  • GetVantage has become part of a limited number of fintech companies that have obtained an NBFC licence.
  • With backing from investors such as Chiratae Ventures, Varanium, InCred, DMI, and Japanese investors Sony and DI, GetVantage plans to inject INR 50 crore into its NBFC and secure a total of INR 200 crore to expand its lending activities.

The company has set its sights on disbursing over INR 500 crore annually in short-term working capital finance and providing funding to 1,000+ emerging SMEs across India within the next 18 months.
