In addition to the $425 million received under the deal, L&T Finance Holdings will also be entitled to additional cash flowing into L&T Investment Management until the acquisition is completed. Meanwhile, both L&T Investment Management and HSBC AMC will ensure that their investors and counterparties continue to be serviced as before.

Dinanath Dubhashi, Managing Director and CEO, L&T Finance Holdings Ltd said, “This transaction with HSBC is in line with our strategy to unlock value for our subsidiary companies, which will help us strengthen our balance sheet for the lending business. This will help us accelerate the retrieval of the lending portfolio, which is one of our long-term goals.”

Let us inform that IDFC is also in the process of selling its mutual fund business- IDFC MC. According to information received from sources, IDFC may also follow the benchmark adopted in this deal of L&T and HSBC for the correct valuation of its mutual fund business.
