Utkarsh Small Finance Bank partners with CredAvenue to expand loan portfolio

Co-lending marketplace CredAvenue has announced the onboarding of Utkarsh Small Finance Bank. This partnership paves the way for the bank to expand its loan portfolio while also opening avenues for mutually beneficial 100:0 partnerships with non-banking financial companies (NBFCs), housing finance companies (HFCs) and microfinance institutions (MFIs) and fintech/digital finance players via the platform.

CredAvenue’s co-lending platform also facilitates business correspondence (BC) arrangements, in which the lender to originator ratio in co-lending is 100:0. However, in this case, the originator will help the lender enhance access to customers and markets by leveraging its depth of penetration.
