*excluding episodic financing book
The highlights of the quarter in respect of the wholesale mortgage lending are as under:
We continue to be in a challenging environment accelerated by the COVID-19 crisis and the lockdown that has been initiated since mid-March 2020. We believe the residential sales will continue to be under pressure due to uncertainty among prospective buyers about the economy and the path to recovery. Commercial real estate and retail sectors will also be impacted due to the lockdown. Most geographies have witnessed commencement of construction activities albeit at a slow pace. After the easing of the lockdown we had witnessed increase in footfalls to sites by prospective buyers. However repeated lockdowns in some geographies has slowed down that process again significantly. The sites continue to struggle with limited availability of labour and lack of movement of material.
We continue to believe that completed projects will sell faster as there will still be end user demand looking for value deals. New launches and acquisitions will be deferred thus reducing the gap between the supply and demand situations. There have been some positive actions by the RBI and RERA to provide some relief to the struggling sector.
Having said that, these conditions will continue to affect the liquidity in the sector as credit availability will be limited. The current scenario will expedite the consolidation in the sector which would lead to larger players acquiring more market share. We will witness reduction of interest rates for home loans which coupled with attractive prices might lead to end user demand coming back to the residential space. However, the next six to twelve months continue to be uncertain in light of the current lockdown situation and uncertainty about the COVID-19 crisis.
We would remain cautious in our underwriting of new transactions and would continue to support our existing clients to complete their respective ongoing projects.
Until June 30, 2020, we have acquired total outstanding dues of Rs. 60,363 Cr at a gross consideration of Rs. 17,069 Cr. Security Receipts worth ~Rs. 48 Cr were redeemed during the quarter. The outstanding Security Receipts stood at Rs. 11,441 Cr as on June 30, 2020 as compared to Rs. 11,489 Cr as on March 31, 2020. The contribution of JM Financial Asset Reconstruction Company Limited stood at Rs. 2,982 Cr as on June 30, 2020 as compared to Rs. 3,012 Cr as on March 31, 2020. This quarter, the focus was on recoveries however the COVID-19 pandemic has cast a shadow over the recoveries. The lock down has also impacted the NCLT processes and consequently our recoveries have been delayed further. The delays in recoveries have increased the carrying costs of the assets under resolution and thereby impacting the returns from these assets.
The average AUM of our Mutual Fund schemes during the quarter ended June 30, 2020 stood at Rs. 4,049 Cr; comprising of Rs. 964 Cr in equity schemes (including hybrid schemes) and Rs. 3,085 Cr in debt schemes (including liquid scheme). The average AUM of our Mutual Fund schemes during the quarter ended March 31, 2020 stood at Rs. 6,109 Cr; comprising of Rs. 3,285 Cr in equity schemes (including hybrid schemes) and Rs. 2,824 Cr in debt schemes (including liquid scheme).
JM Financial Credit Alternatives, our credit alternatives arm, completed first close of its maiden “JM Financial Yield Enhancer (Distressed Opportunity) Fund I” with commitments aggregating Rs. 159 Crore from HNIs, family offices and institutions.
We continued our focus on diversifying our sources and maturities for our borrowing profile. As on Jun 30, 2020 our long term borrowing as a proportion of total borrowing* stood at approximately 90%. Borrowing through Commercial paper (CP) consisted approximately 6% of the total borrowing* as on Jun 30, 2020. These CP’s were utilised mainly towards the short term liquid assets.
