About Motilal Oswal Financial Services


Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd (MOFSL), established as a non-banking financial company (NBFC) under the Reserve Bank of India Act 1934, offers a broad spectrum of financial services and products.  Founded on May 18, 2005, and commencing business on June 3, 2005, the company quickly expanded its services. In 2006, Motilal Oswal Securities Ltd. (MOSL) became a subsidiary after acquiring MOSL shares from the founders Motilal Oswal and Raamdeo Agrawal and some promoter group members. Additionally, MOFSL acquired Motilal Oswal Commodities Broker Pvt Ltd and Motilal Oswal Venture Capital Advisors Pvt Ltd, further broadening its reach. In 2006, the company acquired Peninsular Capital Markets Limited, a Kerala-based broking entity. The year 2007-08 saw technological advancements with the implementation of a web-based application for mutual fund distribution, enhancing accessibility nationwide. Furthermore, Motilal Oswal Capital Markets Pvt. Ltd became a subsidiary of MOSL. MOFSL's Initial Public Offer (IPO) in 2007, involving 2,9,82,710 equity shares, was another landmark achievement, leading to listings on the Bombay Stock Exchange Ltd and National Stock Exchange of India Ltd. In 2008-09, Antop Traders Pvt Ltd joined the fold as a subsidiary. The subsequent years witnessed further expansion, including launching a mutual fund business, acquiring an office building in Mumbai, and crossing significant financial milestones, such as DP assets exceeding ₹10,000 crore and the group's net worth surpassing ₹1,000 crore. In 2016, MOFSL's asset management business sector saw substantial growth, becoming one of the fastest-growing in the country. That same year, Aspire Home Finance, a company active in affordable housing and promoted by MOFSL, surpassed ₹1,000 crore in loan disbursements. The company's international expansion began with the Motilal Oswal India Fund (MOIF) launch in 2016, granting global investors access to Indian equity capabilities. By 2018, MOFSL had 18 subsidiaries, with MOSL's broking business achieving record revenue. The amalgamation of MOSL into MOFSL and the transfer of the lending business to Motilal Oswal Capital Markets Limited marked strategic restructuring moves. As of 2019, the company has revamped Aspire Home Finance into Motilal Oswal Home Finance and continues to achieve significant growth in various sectors, including asset management and wealth management. In 2020 and 2021, MOFSL incorporated new subsidiaries, focusing on investment advisory services and continued capital allocation for long-term RoE enhancement opportunities. The year 2022 was notable for launching the largest PE fund, IBEF IV, and a range of strategic partnerships and expansions, further solidifying MOFSL's presence in the financial services sector. As of 2023, MOFSL has continued innovating with products like Options Store and Research 360, launching multiple AIFs and expanding its SIP offerings. The company's strategic moves, including acquiring MO Alternative IFSC Private Limited and setting up a representative office in Dubai, UAE, underscore its ongoing commitment to growth and diversification in financial services.
