PNB Housing Finance and YES BANK announced today that they have entered into a strategic co-lending agreement to offer convenient and customized retail loans to homebuyers at competitive interest rates. PNB Housing and YES BANK will synergise capabilities to provide an efficient and seamless experience to existing and new retail home loan customers.
PNB Housing and YES BANK will jointly do due diligence and co-originate the loan at an agreed ratio. PNB Housing will service the customers through the entire loan lifecycle, including sourcing, documentation and collection with an appropriate information sharing arrangement with YES BANK.
In 2020, RBI allowed the co-origination of HFCs with banks to enable non-banking finance companies and other banking institutions to provide mutually-beneficial risk assessment services. The revised co-lending model, introduced in November 2020, gives lenders greater flexibility vis-a-vis offering higher credit for the unserved and underserved segments of the population.
PNB Housing Finance, Business Head Retail, Rajan Suri said, "India's financial sector is witnessing a historical disruption with most banks and NBFCs harnessing the power of new-age technologies to innovate and deliver qualitatively superior products and services to customers. The digital transformation has opened up untapped opportunities in the retail home loan space. We have seen a steady demand among the working class, especially millennials, who are keen to realise their dream of owning a home early in their careers. I am confident that our strategic co-lending partnership with YES BANK will enable us to accelerate our business growth and add significant value to customer relationship and experience."
Rajan Pental, Global Head - Retail Banking, YES BANK, said, "We are pleased to partner with PNB Housing Finance to provide a wider range of real estate financing options to borrowers. The partnership provides ease of loan sanctions at borrower's convenience through digital lending platforms - thereby enabling homebuyers to fulfil their dreams and aspirations. This partnership will go a long way to bring local expertise and assist the Bank to boost its footprint in newer geographies. It is our constant endeavour to curate and innovate products that add value for customers, and source meaningful partnerships that enable us to serve that goal."
