SBI has leveraged its brand and its public trust, apart from the network of the SBI group to build an incomparable mutual fund franchise. What is surprising is the product mix of SBI MF.

The political equations are still emerging even as Naidu and Nitish have pledged their unflinching support to the ruling NDA. The INDIA bloc had also sent feelers to these two leaders but that does not seem to have made much progress. Clearly, the two major NDA partners would prefer to go with the NDA, with whom they already had a pre-poll alliance. It may be recollected that the BJP fell about 32 short of the half way mark and has to depend on the allies like the TDP and the JDU to form the central government.

One thing that political watchers are worried about is that Special Status to Andhra Pradesh and Bihar could add to the fiscal burden of the government. This could have an adverse impact on the government plan to reduce the fiscal deficit to below 5.1% in FY25 and further to below 4.5% in FY26. When a state is given special status, they get more funding from the center to spend on welfare schemes, apart from grants and special tax incentives. Experts feel some of this can be cushioned in the RBI dividend largesse. Clix Capital plans to raise nearly Rs5,000 crore via debt in FY24 to boost its funding book. Clix Capital is largely a financer for MSMEs in India.

In FY24, Clix Capital had reported 125% spike in net profits at Rs63 crore, with total AUM standing at Rs5,872 crore. Their average loan ticket size is around Rs18 lakhs, largely to the MSMEs.
