We remain focused and believe our diverse set of businesses will help us perform and deliver value for our clients.”



Business Update


  • Investment banking, Wealth Management and Securities business (IWS)


The IWS segment gained traction during the quarter. Our recruitment in this segment gained momentum especially in the wealth management business. The pipeline for our investment banking transactions continues to remain healthy. The loan book in this segment remained steady during the quarter.


During the quarter, some of our completed investment banking transactions were as follows:

  • Global Coordinator and Book Running Lead Manager to the Initial Public Offer of Spandana Sphoorty Financial Limited (~Rs. 1,200 Cr) and Qualified Institutions Placement of Yes Bank Limited (~Rs. 1,930 Cr).
  • Manager to the buy back of equity shares of Wipro Limited (~Rs. 10,500 Cr).
  • Manager and Selling Broker to the Offer for Sale of equity shares of Reliance Nippon Life Asset Management Company Limited (~Rs. 1,011 Cr).
  • Lead Manager to the public issue of Non-Convertible Debentures of Shriram Transport Finance Company Limited (~Rs. 340 Cr) and JM Financial Products Limited (~Rs. 128 Cr).
  • Exclusive Financial Advisor to Sona BLW Precision Forgings and JM Financial Private Equity on controlling stake sale to Blackstone.
  • Exclusive Financial Advisor to Jaypore and its shareholders for sale of 100% equity shares of Jaypore to Aditya Birla Fashion and Retail Limited.
  • Exclusive Financial Advisor and Exclusive Manager for the Open Offer by Baring Private Equity Asia to the shareholders of NIIT Technologies Limited
  • Exclusive Manager to the Open Offer made by Epsilon Bidco Pte. Ltd. (part of the Blackstone group) to the public shareholders of Essel Propack Limited.


The AUM/AUA of our wealth management business stood at Rs. 46,818 Cr (excluding custody assets) as on September 30, 2019 as compared to Rs. 43,941 Cr as on September 30, 2018 and Rs. 43,038 Cr as on June 30, 2019.

During the quarter, the average daily trading volume stood at Rs. 10,748 Cr.


During the quarter, in IPO financing business, we funded 3 public issues (including 1 NCD issue) wherein the aggregate amount of funding was around Rs. 3,370 Cr.


  • Mortgage Lending

The total mortgage lending book (comprising of loan book of JM Financial Credit Solutions Limited and JM Financial Home Loans Limited) stood at Rs. 8,302 Cr as on September 30, 2019. Our wholesale mortgage lending focuses on Tier - 1 cities, viz., Mumbai, Thane, Pune, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata and NCR.  We are at the initial stages of our retail mortgage lending and are currently focused on acquiring the right talent, employing technology and processes before we ramp up our presence in terms of products and geography.


The real estate sector is majorly affected due to the liquidity crunch being faced by the sector. This has been due to various factors starting from the introduction of RERA to demonization to GST. The final blow came in the form of the liquidity issues being faced by NBFCs and HFCs. This has also impacted the pace of the ongoing projects as most NBFCs have slowed down disbursements to committed sanctions and almost stopped any new sanctions. Moreover, some of the HFCs have also slowed down home loan disbursements leading to difficulties in new sales and collections. There is also a major crisis of confidence with regards to the end user towards under construction projects. However, a silver lining is that affordable and low to mid segments in select geographies are still performing well and sales continue to be healthy.


We have always guided that there will be a rapid consolidation in the real estate space and believe that the market share of the larger developers will increase substantially. With almost negligible amount of price appreciation in residential real estate over the last 6-7 years, investors are completely out of the market. The margins of developers have reduced and they are forced to look at business differently. We also believe that the liquidity crunch in the sector will continue for another one year and the developers with lower leverage and ability to sell will be the ones who will be better placed to tide through this time.


In the backdrop of the above mentioned scenario the impact on our portfolio can be summarised as under:

  • Since majority of the portfolio is cashflow backed even since September 2018, we have continued to witness healthy weekly collections in our escrow accounts. This demonstrates that sales and collections are still happening at the right price point at good locations and in projects being developed by reputed builders. However, in few of the cases the pace of collections has gone down substantially. In these cases we have actively been involved with the developers and will use in-house expertise to push sales.
  • Low concentration risk and geographic diversification has enabled us not to be impacted significantly due to slowdown in a particular market or a particular developer. We have always focused on keeping the average exposure to each project below Rs. 100 Cr and have avoided concentration to any one geography. 23% of the portfolio are loans given against ready inventory which witnesses robust sales and collection.
  • Smaller developers are finding it difficult to record good sales when the project is under construction. In such cases we are working proactively to get in another reputed developer to buy the project or enter into Joint Developer Agreements or Development Management Agreements to ensure timely execution and sales of the project.
  • In some cases due to the various reasons mentioned above additional construction funding is required for the projects to take them to completion. We are strategically focusing on ensuring that all our projects have full financial closure to ensure we get the project to Occupation Certificate stage. In most cases we have witnessed very rapid and robust sales once OC is received.


We have carried out stress tests under multiple scenarios on our loan book and have realized that though developers might face liquidity mismatch, the portfolio has healthy security / cashflow covers to enable us to recover our entire loan.


We will carry out these stress tests at regular intervals to reassess the situation, especially as there is some probability that current situation could worsen before it gets better.



  • Distressed Credit


We chose not to participate in any fresh acquisitions during the quarter. The complete focus of the business was on recoveries and resolutions. The recoveries during the quarter stood at Rs. 483 Cr. We have also been experiencing resolution delays in some of our key accounts further impacting our focus to look at fresh acquisitions. Further, the global investors in distressed assets have virtually stopped their fresh investments pending clarity and final judgement on certain cases.


 The outstanding Security Receipts (SRs) stood at Rs. 14,037 Cr as on September 30, 2019 as compared to Rs. 14,191 Cr as on June 30, 2019. The contribution of JM Financial Asset Reconstruction Company Limited stood at Rs. 3,107 Cr as on September 30, 2019 and Rs. 3,140 Cr as on June 30, 2019.

  • Asset Management

The average AUM of our Mutual Fund schemes during the quarter ended September 30, 2019 stood at Rs. 6,488 Cr; comprising of Rs. 4,509 Cr in equity schemes (including hybrid schemes) and Rs. 1,979 Cr in debt schemes (including liquid scheme).
