Alternate / Private Credit – ‘tip of the Iceberg’
MACRO CREDIT CONTEXT IN INDIA
- India GDP: ~USD 2.5 tn, expected to grow at at least 3–4% over the long–term
Debt in the Indian economy is ~USD 2.2 tn with a Debt–to–GDP ratio of 0.9x vs over 2.5x for other similar sized economies
- Banks and public debt markets account for ~82% of the debt while NBFCs are ~15% & private capital pools account for the rest – banks are the pre–dominant risk capital in India!
- Structural & ALM crises / management capabilities in NBFCs / HFCs likely to be temporary; LT growth of non–bank space inevitable if there is a free–market approach from RBI
- Regulations already in place to focus banks (the largest capital providers in India) towards social lending, consumer banking & project finance. Hence, NBFCs /HFCs / MFIs have historically grown 15–25% with the regulatory & cultural arbitrage embedded in Indian credit markets
SUB–SECTOR COUNTER TRENDS
- Real Estate (RE) sector credit exposure ~USD 90 bn (~4% of overall debt); active investment in Housing, Infra & other hard assets key to sustained GDP growth => LT investment opportunity
- Ratio of risk capital exactly the opposite in developed markets like EU & USA => private capital / non–bank slated for massive growth LT => multidecadal financing opportunity in India towards alternate assets
