History of GOLD loan Gold is a brilliant yellow precious metal that is resistant to air and water corrosion. It is a very soft and pure metal. Gold is the most malleable and ductile metal found on earth. Thats why it is expensive and it is alloyed with other metals, usually copper and silver to make it less expensive and harder, a karat is the unit that measures the purity of gold jewellery or else it is hallmarked with a three digit number that indicates the parts per thousand of gold. Some countries hallmark gold with a three digit number that indicates the parts per thousand of gold. The alloyed gold comes in many colours and may not be bright yellow all the time. It has long been a values commodity, particularly in India where it is considered auspicious, and had been in use for centuries in the form of jewellery, coins, bullions, electronics, and dentistry, also for other medical purposes. Though gold is a highly liquid asset, it wasnt until recently that consumers leveraged it effectively to meet their liquidity needs. Lenders provide loans by securing gold assets as collateral. Compared with the rest of the world in India the gold loan market is big business. Until a decade back, most of the lending was in the unorganized sector through pawnbrokers and money lenders. However this scenario changed with the entrance of organized sector players such as banks and non banking finance companies (NBFCs) which now command more than 25% of the market. The organized

gold loan market has grown at 40% CAGR form 2002 to 2010. NBFCs have been a major driving force behind this growth given their extensive network. Faster turnaround time, higher loan to value ratios and the ability to serve non-bankable customers. Of late, banks have improved their gold loan product features and services.Coupled with comparatively lower interest rates charges, bank stand to gain market share at the expanses of NBFCs in the near future.

Rural India accounts for 65% of this gold stock. Though gold price have increased 19% CAGR from 2002 to 2010, gold stock in India has grown at 22% CAGR During the same period to 18000 tons (Rs.32000 billion). The demand for gold has followed a regional trend with southern India accounting for 40% of annual demand, followed by the west (25%), north (20-25%) and east (10-15%). Looking for Gold Loan Market

Major Players The Key Players in the Indian gold loan market include the unorganized sector, banks _ public/private/cooperatives and NBFCs. While the unorganised sector, comprising local pawnbroker and money leader has traditionally dominated the gold loan market for money decades and still commands nearly 75% of the market the organized sector led by NBFCs is catching up fast. The organized sector has grown at a rapid paces of 40% CAGR form the 2002 to 2010 and is expected to grow by 33% to41% CAGR in 2011 And in doing so these companies are challenges the dominance of the large unorganised sector within the organized sector, NBFCs have grown at a repaid rate from 18.4% in FY to 32.2% in FY10.

GLOBAL SCENARIO Loan against gold are traditionally considered taboo in households. Even when gold is pledged it is still done as the last resort. Gold

jewellery at home is considered on par with goddess lakshmi and hence hedging gold for a loan is considered inappropriate. Gold loan market this perception towards gold loan has gradually undergone a change and individuals have started seeing the value of loan against gold as against availing a personal loan the gold loan market that was highly fragmented and dominated by local jewellers, has gradually seen the entry and growth of NBFCs and banks a clear indication of the viability of gold loans as an important loan product. The gold loans market has recently seen a lot of action firm both the consumers and the industry. With gold spiralling upwards borrowers are able to get decent valuation for their gold and the process of getting such a secured loan is also largely hassle free the southern Indian markets have been particularly lucrative for the gold loan business -85%-90% of the gold loan market is in the states of Andhra Pradesh, Tamil nadu and Kerala. According to an estimation of the ICRA management consulting services (IMACS) the organized gold loan market in India stands at $8 billion and is growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGER) of 40% since 2002 there is still ample potential in this segment and with more banks /NBFCs coming into this business, there could be considerable growth in terms of volume. Why NBFCs are growing By virtue of their business model, NBFCs have grown rapidly over the last few years as evidenced by their increase in market share. The key differentiators for the NBFCs as compared to the banks and cooperatives are. Quick loan approvals and disbursals, with minimal documentation

Multitude of loan options with higher LTVs. Greater accessibility due to better penetration. Better operating cost structure visa-a-vies banks. Flexibility provision of very small and very large loan amounts.

Regulatory environment While there are no means of controlling the unorganized sector the organized sector of banks and NBFCs come under the purview of the reserve banks of India (RBI) which has norms to regulate the gold loan market. NBFCs had been traditionally disbursing gold loans through funds received from banks under priority lending for the agricultural sector. The loans under this category enjoy an interest rate discount of approximately 200 bps over the normal interest rates charged by banks. But to reduce the risk in the system the RBI ruled in February 2011 that bank credit to NBFCs for lending against gold jewellery will not be treated as exposure to the agricultural sector. The resulting higher interest rate for funds is expected to promote better lending practices by NBFCs to creditworthy borrowers. With the continued rapid growth of the gold loan market in India RBI has started examining lenders especially NBFCs for possible concentration risks (i.e. risks due to a sharp decline in the prices of gold for a lender with a large exposure to gold assets pledged against the loans.) All lenders are required to adhere to the KYC norms. NBFCs allegedly have not strictly followed this regulation and hence have been under the RBI s scanner for some time now. Currently NBFCs gold loan are regulated by RBI. However, some state governments require compliance with relevant state money lending statutes .if the state governments succeed in enforcing this regulation the profit margin of NBFCs would be further squeezed. There have been recent

complaints regarding high interest rates and penalty rates charged by NBFCs. this has caught the attention of regulators any regulatory move in this regard would impact the profit margin of NBFCs. Impact analysis: RBIS gold loan regulation for NBFCs In its latest move, RBI has come up with a norm for NBFCs that does not allow them to offer a loan above 60% of the value of gold. Why it is a setback for NBFCs? RBIs guideline is a setback for NBFCs because the new rules require greater capital adequacy for the financing companies and the thresh hold for the value of loan against gold is proposed to be at a lower value. This would mean that ornaments of the same value are expected to result in a lesser loan amount and that to at a slightly higher cost. Check out other aspects where NBFCs could be adversely affected. Earlier NBFCs used to provide up to 80% loan against the gold now it would be reduced to mere 60% of the gold value. Gold loans from banks would now become more attractive than NBFCs until they are allowed to lend more on the value of pledged gold the cost of funding for NBFCs would go up due to the RBIs restriction to allow the NBFCs to finance its gold loan from the banks as an exposure to agricultural loan. NBFCs might have to reduce the interest rate to sustain hold in the gold loan market. Hence the current profit margin would come down significantly. Whats in favour of NBFCs? Though this regulation would it hard on the revenue as well as bottom-line of the NBFCs there still some positive assistive to this move:

NBFCs would continue to enjoy the nice segment advantage due to its deep presence in the gold loan market at present; NBFCs have a 32% share of the total gold loan market. The gold loan would still be cheaper than the personal loan, so the size of market is set to grow bigger in coming days. There are many untapped areas where NBFCs could have a better reach than the banks. The advantage o f trouble free and quick loan processing by NBFCs would give them the edge over the banks. NBFCs can raise funds through market borrowings, i.e. Commercial papers to lower the cost of fund.
