Ambit Finvest Private Limited (Ambit Finvest), the Non-Deposit taking Non-Banking Financial Company (NBFC) of the Ambit Group has signed a co-lending agreement with Union Bank of India (UBI) for lending to Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise (MSME) customers.

“The partnership with Ambit Finvest Pvt Ltd. is part of UBI’s strategy to bring synergy between both the companies that will help us serve the most deserving and underserviced businesses. This initiative is a part of Union Bank’s commitment to support the MSMEs by providing tailor-made financial solutions and accelerating the growth of MSMEs to contribute to the country’s economic development," said Lal Singh, CGM, MSME, Union Bank.

Sanjay Dhoka, COO & CFO, Ambit Finvest said with this alliance, Ambit Finvest and Union Bank of India aim to facilitate speedy disbursal of credit across different geographies. “The co-lending partnership with a large organisation like Union Bank of India will help Ambit Finvest further expand its footprint in the MSME segment," he added.
