Most of their operational and business performance is based majorly on tech-driven real estate, online-commerce business and mortgage.

There are two main ways that financial intermediaries like mortgage companies and banks source the funding for the mortgages. One is through monetary deposit base and floats, which the banks mostly use for retail banking. The second way is through wholesale supply of money (treasury notes, securities or bonds etc.) that financial intermediaries use for huge transactions for large clients which then is given at relatively low rates.
The difference between the two ways of funding is that the former method of retail bank mortgaging is heavily influenced by interest-rate and as the interest rate rise then lending from the float (non-interest based deposit/current account) becomes highly profitable without compressing the spread-margins. The wholesale supply method of mortgaging is relatively immune to any changes in base interest rates.
