Elevation Capital VI FII Holdings (formerly known as SAIF India VI FII Holdings) has upped its stake in Muthoot Capital Services from 7.02 per cent to 9.52 per cent.

In a regulatory disclosure, Elevation Capital said it acquired the shares of Muthoot Capital Services via open market purchase on Monday.

Muthoot Capital Services, promoted by the Muthoot Pappachan Group, is a Non-Banking Finance Company (NBFC). It offers retail finance products such as two-wheeler loans and used car loans and an investment product in the form of fixed deposits.

As of December-end 2020, the assets under management of Muthoot Capital Services stood at ₹2,199.6 crore (₹2,235.4 crore as of September-end 2020).
