Home Credit Group (”Home Credit”) is a leading multi-channel provider of consumer finance in Europe with a strong foothold in Asia. Founded in 1997, Home Credit Group is focused on nine key consumer finance markets of the Czech Republic, Slovakia, the Russian Federation, Belarus, Kazakhstan, China, Vietnam, India, and Indonesia and is developing a new business in Philippines. Its 41,600 employees have so far served 33 million customers across all geographies where the services are provided under the Home Credit brand (as at 31 December 2012).
Products and its distribution
Home Credit’s core business is to provide consumer finance lending to qualified, mass market retail customers, often first-time borrowers. This largely takes the form of in-store financing, i.e. non-collateralized, non-cash loans primarily to customers seeking purchases of consumer durable goods; Home Credit provides this service directly in the shops as point-of-sales loans. In more mature markets, Home Credit also provides cash loans, credit cards, revolving loans or car loans, predominantly to existing customers who have already established a good track record with the company. As business expands the company is also selectively adding retail banking services.
Currently Home Credit Group has a multichannel distribution network with a relatively low cost base consisting 111,000 distribution points (952 branches, 107,000 sales points, 3,097 post offices, telephone and internet; as at 31 December 2012).
Home Credit Group’s achievements to date have been driven by the successful implementation of its 3-step strategy business model which has been rolled-out across all of Home Credit’s key markets. The model evolves from point of sales outlets (“POS”) financing to broader consumer credit products and ultimately to a fully-fledged branch-enabled consumer lender. Indeed, in countries where Home Credit holds a banking license, the company also offers retail banking services such as deposits or current accounts. The ultimate focus is on facilitating strong cross-selling opportunities and enhancing our customer relations offering to increase retention rates. In this way, Home Credit Group operates through its companies in nine markets and has expanded in CEE, CIS and Asian regions through a combination of green-field operations, acquisitions, and joint ventures – a strategy that is hard to replicate.
