APAC’s focus is in lending to underserved MSME (Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises), on a pan-India basis, including smaller cities and semi urban centers.
A combination of domain knowledge, innovation, execution excellence, best-in-class corporate governance and risk management are the key guiding principles of APAC.
APAC under its “Aapka Loans” brand, is building small-ticket Home Loan business focused on new to credit & self-employed customer segments. Launched in Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) to cater to the underserved affordable housing segment, APAC has also extended its footprint in Rajasthan.
In keeping with its ethos of building granular portfolios across MSMEs, APAC does no wholesale or real estate developer financing, in either its NBFC or HFC.
APAC group aspires to become a full-service provider to the MSME (Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises) segments by combining Physical and Digital Platforms, thereby providing a Phygital experience to its customers and becoming a new-age fintech enabled NBFC, with thin-architecture branches.
APAC is promoted by Mr. Gunit Chadha , who after leading Deutsche Bank’s franchise in 16 countries across Asia Pacific (including India sub-continent, ASEAN, Greater China, Japan & ANZ), returned to the financial services industry in India in a new entrepreneurial avatar, as Founder of APAC Financial Services, a broad-spectrum credit lending platform across Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises.
