Bajrang Finance Ltd Management Discussions.
a) Industry structure and developments
During the year under review some major financial companies defaulted thereby affecting liquidity in the markets. NBFCs too witnessed decline in disbursements and margin contraction due to rising cost of funds. FY 2018-19 witnessed a surge in indices led by key constituents of the Nifty although the broader market including the midcap segment failed to show the kind of buoyancy displayed by the index. Bank Credit grew 13% while Deposits grew 10%. Mid 2018 witnessed considerable weakness in inflows into debt mutual funds. The year also saw considerable stress in certain Housing Finance Companies and other reputed corporate groups.
b) Opportunities and Threats
Your Company being an investment Company seeks opportunities in the capital market. The volatility in stock indices in the financial year under report represents both an opportunity and challenge for the Company. Capital market activities in which most of our activities depend on is also influenced by global events happening in the US, UK & China and hence there is an amount of uncertainty in the near term outlook of the market. With the stability of Government at Centre, the capital market prospect would significantly improve.
c) Segment-wise Performance
The Company is engaged in investment activities and other financial services during the year under review, hence the requirement of segment-wise reporting is considered irrelevant.
We continue to see a significant opportunity in the market and will use periods of interim weakness as investment opportunities for long term.
e) Risks and Concerns The performance of the Company is dependent on the capital markets for its returns. Even though it is envisaged that Indian stock market will continue to do well, global concerns can result in sharp corrections.
