Business News/ Markets / Stock Markets/  Bajaj Finserv Q4 results: Consolidated profit jumps 31.4%

NBFC-major Bajaj Finserv posted a 31.4% growth in consolidated net profit to 1,769 crore for the fourth quarter of FY23 compared to a profit of 1,346 crore in the same quarter a year ago. Consolidated total income stood at 23,625 crore up by 25.2% versus 18,862 crore in Q3 of the previous fiscal.

In terms of segments, interest income increased 31% to 11,025 crore in the fourth quarter from 8,383 crore in the same period the year prior.

In an exchange filing, the company stated that there was ongoing inflationary pressure throughout FY23. During FY23, the RBI raised the repo rate by 250 basis points in order to offset the effects of rate increases made by central banks around the world and to clearly target inflation.

"In April 2023, the RBI kept the repo rate unchanged with a statement that the pause was only for this meeting. Conditions were conducive for savings which resulted in a favourable growth for the life insurance sector. With Covid-19 threat having waned, there was significant increase in vehicles on the road and non-covid treatments which had been postponed earlier, resulting in higher frequency of claims for the general insurance sector. In this environment of higher interest rates and insurance claims, our companies continued to do well," added the company.
