India’s Export Import (Exim) Bank will look to raise up to $2 billion in the current financial year, subject to business conditions and the spread of the Covid pandemic, the lender’s top executive said on Thursday. The organisation reported a 51% year-on-year (y-o-y) rise in net profit for FY20 to Rs 124 crore.

Exim Bank managing director David Rasquinha said that the institution had raised $1 billion in January. “We do have debt-servicing requirements in the current year, of course. We’ve already cleared a debt-servicing requirement of $500 million in April; we have another $500 million coming up in August, for which we’ve already kept the liquidity ready. So I would say we would be looking at maybe coming back to the international markets towards the end of the calendar year and hopefully, we’ll be looking at raising $1-2 billion,” he said.
