Unitech Fixed deposit schemeUnitech Ltd – Fixed deposit scheme – Yield of 15.07% per annum-Review

Last week couple of my friends got an email about Unitech fixed deposit scheme which indicates that the effective yield is 15.07% p.a. They have forward the e-mail asking me to analyze and let them know whether they can invest it. Though, Unitech fixed deposit schemes have been issued for some time, it caught my attention when it indicated such high interest rate. Can we invest in Unitech fixed deposit schemes? What are the risks involved?

As per media reports the investigating agency (CBI) found that the conversation between the Chandra and AK Singh had no impact on the prosecution of the 2G case. We should wait and watch for any further news on this in future.
  2. Company has posted a negative revenue growth of (-12.7%) in FY2012-13 compared to its previous financial year.
  3. Company profits have declined from 27.12% (FY12) to 14.43% (FY13).

Conclusion: Investors may get attracted towards Unitech fixed deposit scheme due to its high yield. All company fixed deposit schemes are high risk, high return investments. I am not un-favor to corporate fixed deposits. However, considering negative revenue and profitable growth, it would be high risk to invest in such fixed deposit schemes.
