Piramal Capital & Housing Finance Limited, formerly known as Dewan Housing Finance Corporation Ltd. herein referred to as Piramal Finance. wholly owned subsidiary of Piramal Enterprises Limited (the flagship company of Piramal Group), is registered as a housing finance company with National Housing Bank (NHB) and engaged in various financial services businesses. It provides both wholesale and retail funding opportunities across sectors. In real estate, the platform provides housing finance and other financing solutions across the entire capital stack ranging from early stage private equity, structured debt, senior secured debt, construction finance and flexi lease rental discounting. Hospitality sector financing is a recent foray of Piramal Finance. Here we are providing financing solutions to hotels which will be operated by branded players in established and emerging markets. The wholesale business in the non-real estate sector includes separate verticals - Corporate Finance Group (CFG) and Emerging Corporate Lending (ECL). CFG provides customized funding solutions to companies across sectors such as infrastructure, renewable energy, roads, industrials, auto components etc. while ECL focuses on lending towards Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs).
The introduction of retail lending was a natural progression attributed to the size, scale and growth of the company’s financial services business. The Housing Finance’s strength lies in its rich experience and its network in the wholesale lending and construction space.
Piramal Finance through its group companies provides customized strategies for institutional and retail investors such as Mumbai Redevelopment Fund focused on slum rehabilitation and Apartment Fund focused on bulk buying individual units (Through Piramal Fund Management) and strategic partnerships with leading global pension funds such as CPPIB, APG and Ivanhoe Cambridge.
