Several senior professionals in the non-banking finance space have quit over the past year and hundreds more are on the lookout for openings elsewhere as the sector reels under a liquidity crunch. 
The departures have halted the trend of banking talent moving to NBFCs, with many top-tier executives, including CXOs, having moved back to — or searching for — safer avenues in fintech, banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI), entrepreneurship/ consulting or even bigger, well-capitalised NBFCs, according to at least half-a-dozen hiring firms. 
Among them are Manisha Lath Gupta, who moved from Clix Capital to Uber as marketing director-India and South Asia, and Ramesh Viswanathan, who left L&T Financial Services and is now chief bancassurance officer at Tata AIA Life Insurance.
