Banking Frontiers welcomes you to NBFC Conference & DNA Awards 2023

About NBFC

India’s NBFCs have long emerged from a step down to banks to create their own marks and capture the market across different segments from secured to unsecured lending. NBFCs ability to take risk has also expanded with adoption of evolving technologies and public infrastructure like India Stack. Yet, India’s massive credit gap calls for the presence of more lending institutions using advanced technologies in functions from underwriting to disbursing to collections and customer service.

From MSMEs to retail consumers, NBFCs have been providing credit where mainstream banks have not been able to service customers.
