SBI MF will become the third fund house to get listed on exchanges after UTI Asset Management and HDFC Asset Management.

The fund house made a profit of ₹862 crore in FY21 from a total income of ₹1,619 crore. Also, it is among the top fund houses in the country with assets under management of ₹5.78 lakh crore as of September quarter.

Reports say that SBI’s plan to list the mutual fund arm is part of its strategy to monetise its non-core operations after divesting some of its stakes in life insurance and cards businesses last year. SBI had raised over ₹10,340 crore through the listing of SBI Cards and ₹8400 crore through SBI Life IPO.
