Edelweiss Financial Services NCD Bonds – April-2024 Issue – Should you invest?

These NCD’s offer high interest rates. Though banks have increased the FD interest rates these days, they are still low compared to the interest rates offered in these NCDs. These NCDs are rated as CRISIL A+/Stable by CRISIL Ratings. Also, secured NCD bonds are relatively safer compared to unsecured bonds while risk is not 100% eliminated.

On the other hand, recently these NCD credit ratings were downgraded and these can change in future too. In the last 5 years, company revenues have fallen and margins are shrinking, however, started regaining now from FY23. One should not forget about some of the NBFC companies defaulted NCD payments earlier and some NBFCs delaying NCD re-payments in the last few years.

High risk investors who understand all these risk factors can invest in these NCDs.

  1. Dear Sir,
    Thank you for your analysis.One question : In case of a Secured NCD, I can understand risk of delayed payments ( interest payouts and principal). However, is the risk of default real? I presume, it is not.
    Would appreciate your clarification, please.

    1. Just check details about DHFL Secured NCDs. These were several secured NCDs issued before the scam broke-out, however thousands of investors has not received the money. Recently many readers on this blog commented that SREI had many NCD issues earlier and there is delay in payment of interest and many were enquiring whether their capital is at risk or not. These are the risks one should consider before purchasing these bonds.
