More to join

Sarwate told Business Line: “The Rajesh Wadhawan Group has constituted a Group Management Centre (GMC) to transform the group into a financial services conglomerate, by enhancing the group’s capabilities. Over the next few weeks, more professionals with a proven track record would be inducted in the GMC.”

As member of the GMC for financial services, Sarwate would look after strategy, while Ravishankar Gopalakrishnan has joined as member-finance.

The Group’s flagship, DHFL was founded to provide financial access to people in the lower and middle income (LMI) segments.

As Sarwate pointed out: “The group has been serving the LMI segments for over three decades now. It is well placed to leverage on the fact that India has reached the tipping point for explosive growth in financial services.”
