Brokerage firm Jefferies downgraded IIFL Finance to ‘hold’ from ‘buy’ while cutting the target price to 435 per share from 765 earlier.

Jefferies said, “The RBI’s order can dent earnings due to rapid unwinding of profitable gold loan book. Given the time of lifting of the ban is uncertain and we assume that the ban would stay for 9 months, we expect assets under management (AUM) to fall 1 percent YoY and 51 percent YoY fall in gold AUM in FY25.”
