50 Best Companies to Work For 2016

On the way to become the largest retail-finance company: Magma FinCorp

Since Magma FinCorp set up shop in 1989, its been driven by one single, purposeful goal- investing in the smallest dream. A loan every minute, a million lives touched every year; it manages assets worth over Rs.192 billion, for us it is just a beginning. Over 80% of its 230+ branches are in semi-urban and rural India; the family of 9000+ Magmaites, and Magma Fincorp’s 27+ years experience in underwriting has enabled us to extend support to the masses that have been excluded by the traditional financial systems.

Why Magma Fincorp
Under-banked Customer Base: Magma has espoused the policy of financial inclusion by focusing on customers who are left out of the banking network. Magma prefers to finance customers who do not have adequate documentation, credit history and hence are perceived as a high-risk category by the banking channels. Magma believes that credit worthiness can be evaluated by employing innovative methods that take into account the subjective knowledge gleaned from customer visits and background checks. This provides an opportunity to the customer to start building a credit history and move towards financial inclusion. The low delinquency levels in the loan book demonstrate the success of the methods that Magma employs for credit appraisal.

Geographical Diversification: Magma has a pan India presence spread across 22 states and union territories, which account for more than 90% of India’s population. Magma has ensured that the loan book exposure in a single state is limited to around 10% thus reducing the impact of local and regional risks eg. drought, floods, political instability. An evenly balanced exposure across the four regions is a culmination of the risk mitigation principles that Magma has followed.

Vertical Organizational Structure: Magma relies on a vertical organizational structure that enables the company to create centres of excellence across functional lines. Departments and teams are split according to the skill requirements and not across locations or product lines. This helps Magma in aligning roles with performance measurement metrics that are in control of the employee. This structure has led to higher levels of accountability, faster decision-making, and better utilization of resources.

Efficient Liability Management: Magma is one of the few NBFCs which has a truly diversified liability profile encompassing bank lines, capital markets and securitization transactions. Magma has been able to make a successful transition from a profile with a high share of securitization to a profile evenly spread across all three funding channels. This allows Magma the flexibility to balance the channel wise exposure to optimize the benefits of liquidity, cost of funds and maturity.
