SWAMIH Investment Fund

  • SWAMIH investment fund is an alternative investment fund which aims to provide last-mile funding to the stressed affordable and middle-income housing projects in the country.
  • It is expected to fund the projects which are net-worth positive, including those projects that have been declared as NPAs or are pending proceedings before the National Company Law Tribunal under the IBC.

Why need such funds?

  • Several real estate projects have suffered due to a combined effect of two changes in the real estate sector.
  • On one hand, incremental launches and slow sales have increased unsold inventory in each project.
  • While the effect has then got compounded by the fact that consumer preference is now towards completed projects rather than under-construction projects.
  • This preference has developed as consumers are largely avoiding taking project completion risk and instead are more inclined to completed projects.
