Non-banking financial intermediaries engage in banking practises (mostly lending) that are referred to as “shadow banking.”
These types of banking operations are carried out outside of the conventional banking sector.
Intermediaries are not subject to the same regulations as conventional banks.
Shadow lenders include non-banking financial companies (NBFCs).
