Edu NBFC Avanse Financial Services raises Rs 390 Cr funding


Avanse Financial Services, education-focused non-banking financial company, announced on Thursday that it has raised Rs 390 Cr funding.

With this investment, the net worth of Avanse Financial Services stands at Rs 1,450 crores, claimed a press release from the company.

Besides helping students with educational loans, Avanse also funds educational institutions to meet their needs. It has provided financial assistance to about 1000 educational institutions till now.

With the fresh round of funding we will be able to fund even more students,” said Amit Gainda, MD and CEO, Avanse Financial Services.
