Chennai is one of the fastest-growing industrial hubs encompassing key sectors like automobile, IT, manufacturing and healthcare. With so many growing sectors, businesses and individuals are in constant need of funds to finance projects, start-ups and even for personal use.

This has also given rise to a thriving financial district with several domestic and global banks & NBFCs extending mortgage loans in Chennai.

When you need to raise funds for high-value personal expenses or for business purposes, loans against property are generally sought when you need a significant amount of funds. For such high-value funds to be sanctioned by Fullerton India, we require collateral to approve a huge loan amount. Property security from the point of view of the financial institution is safe collateral where possibilities of value appreciation are high.
