Bajaj Finance investors now seem to be taking note of the consumption slowdown and the adverse impact that it can have on the lender’s financial performance. Bajaj Finance has said its assets under management increased by 35% for the December quarter, the slowest growth in last two years. What's worse, is that growth in new loans has dropped sharply to 13% from 23% in the September quarter. Bajaj Finance’s management had warned about the slowdown in AUM growth in the September quarter. However, the slowdown seems to be deeper than what the lender had anticipated.
