Jio Financial Services Wants to Get Into the Leasing of Telecom Equipment



Jio Financial Services Wants to Get Into the Leasing of Telecom Equipment

Jio Financial Services, an Indian company, intends to enter the device leasing market.

The financial services company sent out a postal ballot notice requesting shareholder approval to purchase telecom equipment and devices valued at 360 billion rupees ($4.33 billion) from Reliance Industries’ retail division.

The report lists cell phones and routers among these devices.

According to the report, a Jio Financial Services subsidiary will compete with Hewlett Packard, Lenovo, and other companies in the device-rental market by renting out this equipment to users of Reliance Jio Infocomm, the company’s telecom arm.

The report states that the voting on this proposal will conclude on June 22.

As per the report, Jio Financial Services separated from the Reliance Group in 2023.

Jio Financial Services, the company’s digital financial services unit, was listed by Reliance Industries, which also operates in the retail, oil, and textile industries, to allow investors to concentrate on FinTechs generally and digital lending specifically.

The decision was made approximately a year after billionaire Mukesh Ambani, the head of the multinational conglomerate, declared that Jio Financial Services would be “a technology-led business, delivering financial products digitally by leveraging the nationwide omni-channel presence of Reliance’s consumer businesses.” The announcement was made regarding the spinoff.

Another recent action was the announcement in April by Jio Financial Services and BlackRock of the formation of a joint venture to build a wealth management and brokerage business in India.

Less than a year had passed since the companies started their asset management endeavor. They intend to court the increasing number of Indian retail investors as that nation’s stock market soars to all-time highs by establishing a brokerage business.

Regarding Reliance, the company’s Reliance Retail division announced in October 2023 that it has teamed up with SBI Card to introduce a credit card on the RuPay payment network in India.

With the co-branded card, Reliance enters the credit card market and hopes to win over customers to its 18,650 retail locations with rewards.

The announcement of the card coincided with a surge in credit card spending of nearly 20% annually and a rise in the number of cards in the RuPay network.
