Why you should not invest?
- There have been issues with some well rated companies like DHFL, IL&FS where rating agencies suddenly downgrade the rating. This risk always existed but it has come to forefront in last few months
- There are NCDs available in secondary market which have higher yields with similar rating. The problem is low liquidity and hence is difficult to buy in large numbers.
- The present Tax Free Bonds are offering yields up to 6.5% in secondary market, which is better investment for People in highest tax bracket.
- You can also invest in high rated company fixed deposits
How to Apply?
If you have Demat account apply through that or ASBA facility provided by banks. It’s the easiest way to apply and also avoids a lot of hassle in terms of KYC and paper work
In case you don’t want to do it online, you can download the application form from Financial Institutions and submit to collection centers.
- My recommendation is to invest some part of your Fixed Income investment in this NCD Issue
- You should always have diversified portfolio be it fixed deposit, NCD or equity investment
- Its good idea to remain invested till maturity because liquidity on exchanges is low and hence you would get lower than market value
If you plan to invest in this issue, do it on first day as most NCD issues are over-subscribed within few days of opening.
