About Shriram Group

Shriram Group is an Indian conglomerated set up on 5 April 1974 by Ramamurthy Thyagarajan, AVS Raja and T. Jayaraman. They have their base camp in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. The gathering had its beginning in chit support business and later on entered the advancing business through Shriram Transport Finance (Commercial Vehicle Finance) and Shriram City Union Finance (Consumer and MSME Finance). In 2018, the association forayed into metallurgy by setting up a unit in Odisha

The 90,000 Cr Shriram Group had its humble beginnings in the Chit Fund business over three decades earlier. R.Thyagarajan, AVS Raja and T Jayaraman were the authors who meandered into these associations. Moderately not many in the financial organization’s industry thought around at that point, this little Chit Funds business in Chennai would be the foundation for the budgetary total that Shriram is today. Shriram Group has banded together with Sanlam, the main insurance in South Africa to enter the Insurance business. In a joint endeavour, Shriram Group and Sanlam give both Life and Non-Life Insurance arrangements. The Group started its adventure in Life protection business in December 2005 and propelled its Non-Life insurance business in July 2008.
