IIFL Finance Limited (Erstwhile ‘IIFL Holdings Limited’) is one of the leading players in the Indian financial services space.

IIFL Finance is a first generation venture which started as a research firm in 1995. IIFL Finance Limited was a pioneer in the retail equity broking industry with its launch of 5paisa trading platform which offered the lowest brokerage in the industry and freedom from traditional ways of transacting.
