History[edit | edit source]
Aditya Birla Group got into the financial service business with a Non-bank financial institution called Birla Growth Fund in 1986 (later renamed Birla Global Finance Limited in 1994). In 2005, the group decided to consolidate its business and as part of this exercise, it merged Birla Global Finance Limited into Aditya Birla Nuvo. At the time of the merger, Birla Global Finance had assets worth approximately INR 160 billion under its management. Aditya Birla Capital (incorporated as Aditya Birla Financial Services Limited in 2007 as a 100% subsidiary of Aditya Birla Nuvo) subsequently became the holding company for financial service businesses of the group. In 2017, Aditya Birla Financial Services was renamed Aditya Birla Capital.

Aditya Birla Capital got into the insurance sector in India after the government allowed entry of private companies in the sector. In 2001, Birla Sun Life Insurance Company Limited was founded as a joint venture between Aditya Birla Group and Sun Life Financial of Canada with Aditya Birla Nuvo (then Indian Rayon) and Birla Global Finance together holding 74% of the company's equity shares and Sun Life Financial holding 26%.
