With a positive outlook for the affordable low-income housing segment, driven by government initiatives such as housing for all and infrastructure status for affordable housing, Aadhar Housing Finance is well-positioned for growth. Its reasonably priced ask valuations compared to industry peers, growing Gross AUM and Net Worth, stable average ticket size of loans, and increasing penetration into tier 4 and tier 5 towns all indicate sound financial health and potential for further expansion.
