Edelweiss is a large financial services firm with presence in India's most scalable and profitable sectors. Our various businesses address the needs of multiple client segments and demographics. During the last few years, several of Edelweiss' "young" businesses have gained ground while the mature businesses have scaled up into sustainable business models with increased market share in their respective segments.
The diversified revenue mix has helped us achieve improvement in our performance on a sustained basis despite volatile environment.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Rashesh Shah, Chairman and CEO, Edelweiss Financial Services Limited said: "The volatility in the last few months tested our models, our systems, our assumptions and our organisation. I am proud to report that we emerged unscathed from this, without having to resort to any heroic measures. Our Liquidity Cushion and Other Liquid Assets (OLA) together helped us manage the liquidity environment while our diversified business model (Wealth & Asset Management, Credit, Insurance & Capital markets) helped us cushion impact on profits.
We have received strong funding support from all quarters with Banks and retail investors now contributing 63% of our liabilities. In continuance of our strategy that started as far back as FY15, on the liability side, we have reduced our dependence on CPs substantially, which is now at just 7%. Liquidity-wise, we currently have Rs 14,000 crores to fund our growth and meet all liabilities over next 3 years. We have always been prudent on the need to keep a liquidity cushion of around 12-13% of the borrowings." he added
"We as an organisation have always followed a strategy of focussing on long term sustainable growth rather than on short-term profitability management. This helped us emerge stronger after 2008 and again in 2013 taper effect and believe this time will be no different. We will in the next six months continue to strengthen focus on asset quality and liquidity, long term business and building customer value while we remain relentless on heightening our risk management and corporate governance practices, technology investments, building fool proof systems and processes across businesses and strengthening our leadership pipeline.
"Our key business highlight this quarter included the closure of India's largest distressed fund (EISAF II) at $1.3 billion by our Asset Management business and the marquee resolution of Binani Cement in our distressed credit business.
We remain confident of the India growth story, and the role that Edelweiss Financial Services will play in it."
