'Serving the under-served, Addressing the bottom of the pyramid, Inclusive financing
are all phrases that have become common place in the corporate world today. Whether it
is the Chit Fund business, Transport & Equipment Finance business, Consumer Finance
business or even the huge deposit customer base of Shriram ,over 90% of the 10.2 million
customers of the group come under the purview of the under-served.


Chit Funds in 1974 and Transportation Finance in 1978 were all started in South India;
Shriram Groups business strategy of providing a competitive platform to capture the
savings and borrowing wallets of the middle and lower income groups found immediate
acceptance in the southern states and enabled the group to successfully establish itself in
every nook and corner of South India. As Shriram became a household name in the four
southern states, the group ventured into the other three regions through their
transportation business where again the target market was the under-served owner-
operator and customers of used vehicles. By institutionalising a direct connect with the
end customer and by taking complete ownership of every key business process, the

Page 3
Shriram branch was not only in full control of the customer fulfillment process but was
also in a unique position to establish a great and sustainable relationship with customer.
This approach created a huge entry banner to most other players (both Indian & MNCs)
who made several futile attempts to enter the segment. The unique and well-executed
business model attracted several investors, both strategic and portfolio, which enabled the
transportation business of the group to grow by leaps and bounds.


Shrirams stupendous record in building teams at the branch level and providing an
environment for these teams to excel was effectively complemented by a very large
number of agents who supported the branches on customer acquisition for retail deposits.
With over 25,000 active agents, Insurance was a logical diversification as this sector
opened up to private players. While Shriram was amongst the last movers into the Life
and General Insurance industry, the groups established track record of delivering value
to the under-served through a low-cost, relationship-based model enabled them to create
history by being the only General Insurance company to be profitable in its first full year
of operation and one of the two Life Insurance companies to be profitable in the first year
of operation. Sanlam, the largest insurer in South Africa and Shrirams Insurance partner,
is working closely with the group to take the Insurance Businesses to the next level in the
coming years.


With an enviable growth record of 40% CAGR in the last 7 years, an excellent
array of happy investors, a brand that resonates trust and reliability, an employee
strength of over 42,000 with single digit attrition, an ever-growing customer base of
10.2 million strong and a successful low-cost delivery model, Shriram is today a
Financial Services conglomerate poised for attaining greater heights in the near future.
The group realizes that they have to continue to do things differently to sustain the
growth levels and their exemplary service to their target market across businesses. A
strong think-tank has been created at Shriram Capital at the Holding Company level to

Page 4
oversee and provide key inputs to the operating CEOs in critical areas of Synergy
Creation, Risk Management and Leadership development. So much going for the group
internally and in the market place, Shriram has become every Shareholders pride and
every Competitors envy!

The Shriram Group set out with the objective of reaching out to the common man with
a host of products and services that would be helpful to him in his path to prosperity.
Over the decades, the Group has achieved significant success in executing this objective
and has created a tremendous sense of loyalty amongst its customers.
Efficiency in operations, integrity and a strong focus on catering to the needs of the
common man, by offering him high quality and cost-effective products & services, are
the values driving the organization. These core values are deep-rooted within the
organization and have been strongly adhered to over the decades.
The group prides itself on its perfect understanding of the customer. Each product or
service is tailor-made to perfectly suit the needs of the customer. It is this guiding
philosophy of putting people first that has brought the Group closer to the grassroots and
has made it the preferred choice for all financing requirements amongst the customers.

1. Commercial Vehicle Financing:-

The Commercial Vehicle business of the group had its genesis in four
companies, one in each zone and with the common mission of providing used
vehicle financing to the largely under-served owner-operators in the trucking
industry.Engaged exclusively in financing of Commercial Vehicles, both new as well
as old, Shriram Transport Finance Company Limited (STFC), as of now has over
0.85 million truck-owners as customers.
The Assets Under Management is in excess of Rs. 49,000 crores. STFC also
enjoys monopoly position in financing of Used Vehicles. STFC boasts a PAN-India
branch network of 539 offices and 70 SBUs and employees more than 16,000
people. STFC is listed in the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE), and National Stock
Exchange (NSE) of India.STFC is the consolidation of all the four entities, which
happened with the advent of our major financial partner, Texas Pacific Group. This
consolidation and subsequent growth over the last 5 years propelled STFC to the
leadership position in the Transportation Finance Sector.
The key value proposition of STFC include funding the entire business cycle
of the transporter, ranging from his basic working capital needs through discounting
his freight bills and facilitating his vehicle replacement.

2. Consumer & Enterprise Finance:-

Page 6

Chit Funds customers and was started in year 2002 as a separate business unit,
Shriram City Union Finance Ltd. Shriram Housing Finance Ltd. (SHFL) is a Housing
Finance Company registered with the National Housing Bank (NHB), and promoted
by Shriram City Union Finance Ltd. Shriram Housing Finance received the
Certificate of Registration from NHB in August 2011, and commenced their lending
operations from December the same year. Over the years, this business has evolved
itself in the following four distinct verticals:
A. Individual Personal Loans catering to the needs of families for purposes ranging from
emergencies to education.
B. Small Business Loans targeted to Micro Enterprises, self-employed professionals and
such under-served segments of the business community across the various sectors of
the economy.
C. Asset Purchase Loans include all asset-based finance with specific thrust on used and
new three-wheelers/cars and two-wheelers through dealer outlets.
D. Loan against gold is the last addition to the business verticals that caters to the
emergency needs of families that are willing to pledge jewels as well as refinancing
pawn brokers who have been running this business for decades.
The attractiveness of the consumer business and the efficient manner in which the
customer origination and collections are being done encouraged large private equity
players like Texas Pacific Group to take significant stakes, which has in turn enabled a
strong foundation for a sustained Year-on-Year growth in Enterprise value.

3. Retail Stock Broking:-

Stock Broking business of the group was started in 1995, promoted by

professional entrepreneurs and incubated by the Shriram Group through its entity,
Shriram Insight Share Brokers Ltd.

acquired in 2003.The Business has expanded into the commodities market with a trading-

Page 7

Individual (HNI) and Retail space. The business has an active client base of 0.2 million.
The business operates through 1000 branches with equal no. of trading terminals.
The business model of Stock Broking largely focused on owned branches in the initial
years and has now graduated into the franchisee mode of expansion that will cater to PAN
India target market. Rapid expansion has been made possible in this two-pronged strategy
of owned and franchisee outlets and is expected to have an end-state distribution,
networking over 5000 branches.
As the business starts targeting the next level of mass affluent customers, expanding into
wealth management and advisory space, same would also become a key thrust area that
can potentially enhance profitability and shareholder value in the medium term.

4. Life Insurance:-
Shriram was one of the late entrants into the Life Insurance business in India, which
saw a huge influx of private players entering the industry ever since new licenses were
issued in 2006.The largest Insurance player in South Africa, Sanlam is Shrirams
partner in the Life Insurance business.

5. General Insurance:-

Shrirams foray into General Insurance happened much later than its entry into Life
Insurance, though this alliance too was with our Life Insurance partner, Sanlam (South
Africa).Sanlams subsidiary, Santam is the leading non-life Insurance player in South
The General Insurance business in India has gone through significant changes both in
terms of new private players entering the Industry as well as the changes in the
regulatory landscapes.Shriram with its huge captive transportation customers /
business focused all its energy on addressing this target market and ensuring visible
benefits to the transportation community.Faster claims settlement through taking an

Page 8
end-to-end responsibility of the settlement process coupled with a relationship
approach have enhanced the brand equity of Shriram both in Insurance and the
transportation businesses and positioned the General Insurance venture to be a market
leader in motor insurance in the medium term.
Shrirams General Insurance strategy is multi-pronged developing insurance broking,
Risk Management and Loss Assessment pillars which are also the key focus areas in
order to enable significant benefits to the Insurance Industry in general and Shriram
General Insurance in particular.

6. Financial Product Distribution:-

Shriram Groups multifarious Financial Services businesses and its successful track
record of setting up individual business entities in every possible area of this space has
resulted in owning a 9.5 million strong customer base across these business entities.
Data Mining these customer bases and offering various products of the group to each
of these individual entities customers is a huge opportunity for the group. In order to
exploit this opportunity and benefit from the needs of the large customer base of the
group, a distribution company was set up Shriram Fortune Solutions Ltd. primarily
for selling investment and insurance products to the group customers.This business
has the unenviable task of being a multiproduct provider to the groups customers
thereby needing to set up a strong training ground for its field force as well as
continuously work in other group companies to design blue print and implement
strategies that will result in unprecedented cross-sell revenue for the group.
This business has started with a distribution of Debentures / Fixed Deposits and
Life Insurance products and is gradually equipping itself to also distribute non-life and
other investment products in the group. Being a captive distribution company, this
business has a huge opportunity to leverage groups customer base and product
capabilities and create immense value to shareholders and investors in the medium

They are a part of the "SHRIRAM" conglomerate which has significant presence
in financial services viz., commercial vehicle financing business, consumer finance, life
and general insurance, stock broking, chit funds and distribution of financial products
such as life and general insurance products and units of mutual funds. Apart from these
financial services, the group is also present in non-financial services business such as
property development, engineering projects and information technology.Company was
incorporated in the year 1979 and is registered as a Deposit taking NBFC with Reserve
Bank of India under section 45IA of the Reserve Bank of India Act ,1934.STFC decided
to finance the much neglected Small Truck Owner. Shriram understood the power of

Page 10
'Aspiration' much before marketing based on 'Aspiration' became fashionable. Shriram
started lending to the Small Truck Owner to buy new trucks. But They found a mismatch
between the Aspiration and Ability. The Truck Operator was honest but the Equity at his
command was not sufficient to support the credit levels required to buy a new truck
They did not have the heart to send the Truck Operator back empty handed; we
decided to fund Pre-owned Trucks. This was the most momentous decision that we made.
What followed was Sheer magic.From Driver to Owner, even if only of a Pre-owned
Truck and from Pre-owned Truck to the New Truck, we have been with him in his
journey of Prosperity as he has been our partner in our road to success and leadership.
At Shriram, credit-worthiness of the Small Truck Owner has always been an article of
faith. This faith has guided our journey from our pioneering days in financing Small
Truck Owners to the present day leadership. Today we are not only the leader in Truck
Finance; we are also India's largest Asset Based Non-Banking Finance Company.
The inability of the economists to capture data relating to the economic activity of the
informal sector has resulted in its neglect at the policy-making levels in the government.
The distribution of Truck Ownership being scattered among a large number of individuals
has resulted in this very important group being missed by the institutional radar.
It is estimated that 80% of trucks in the country are in the hands of individuals.

B. Medium, Intermediate And Light Duty Truck (LDT)
C. Pick Up Truck And Mini Truck ( P&MT)

A. Heavy Duty Truck (HDT):-

Defined as Heavy Commercial Vehicles or alternatively Multi Axle Vehicles having
gross vehicle weight upwards of 16.2 tons. Being a life line of the economy, these

Page 11
vehicles are an integral part of the commercial activity of any country and these
vehicles are usually deployed in the long haul distance and in transportation of
materials at the ports as also in the extraction of natural resources like Iron or Coal

Almost 100 percent of these vehicles are purchased only under financing and it is
estimated that nearly 1.5 to 2million HCVs are plying the Indian roads. Shriram
Transport offers financing options for the purchase of both new and used vehicles to
this segment which has some of the bigger fleet owners on one end of the spectrum
and the small fleet / single vehicle owner on the other.

vehicles which incidentally has the highest concentration of the small operator and
driver cum owner category of vehicle users.

D. Passenger Vehicle

Page 13
India being a country with a population of 1.4 billion coupled with a widespread
geographical area and an extensive road network, the volume of people moving from
one place to another is catered to by a wide range of passenger vehicles starting from
simple three wheelers, taxis, muvs, vans to high cost and state of the art Volvo /
Mercedes buses travelling across the length and breadth of the country. There are
nearly 10 millions of passenger vehicles that exist which makes this as one of the
highest potential vertical for financing and the most insulated from economic
downturns. In the car segment Shriram Transport had earlier restricted itself to
finance on yellow board (Taxi) vehicles only, keeping in line with its philosophy of
lending against an earning asset but from 2010 personal car loans have also been
included in the product range, thus aligning ourselves to changing lifestyles of the
