This upgrade can further attract investments from retail investors in the public issue of NCDs in which the company has track record of 24 issuances raising Rs 17,392 crore cumulatively.

George Alexander Muthoot, managing director, said: “This is another golden feather on the cap for Muthoot Finance and it is a recognition of its leading and long sustained track record in gold loan business. With this rating upgrade, Muthoot Finance has become one of the few NBFCs who achieved this rating level on standalone basis without any parental support factored in rating.”
