Should you invest in  India Infoline Finance NCD of Aug 2019?


Here are my few thoughts.

We are seeing NBFC companies delaying re-payments to the existing NCD holders. This company is still offering highest interest rates for these NCDs as NBFC companies are finding difficult to get loans in India. Political statements about one of the other NBFC company fraud is also major concern. NBFC Sector is a high risk sector now for any investments. I would advise investors to stay away from such high risk NCDs now. You can invest in some of the good large cap funds or consistent performing Multicap Mutual Funds that can provide high returns though not guaranteed.

Readers, do you feel these NCDs are worth investing?

    How about the sources for “Income from Operations” and “Net Profit” mentioned in this article? The values are different, when checked the “Profit and Loss” at https://www.moneycontrol.com/financials/iifl%20finance/consolidated-profit-lossVI/II15
    Kindly clarify.

    • Hello Shankar, I would not be able to comment on data of other sites. These consolidated financial numbers are specified in the prospectus submitted by company to SEBI. You can refer financial statements section indicated in the prospectus.

  • RP

    You are suggesting investing in Large Cap &/or Multi Cap Mutual Funds & not in such NCDs – do you suggest that instead of debt one invests in equity with total disregard to asset allocation?

    • RP, Thanks for your comments. The question here is not about debt or equity. It is about risk. If one can take similar risk, investing in large cap or multicap mutual funds can fetch higher returns.

    Same content for every NCD .

    • Hello Ks, The content would change for NCD to NCD. However my conclusion in last paragraph alone has remained same in the last 2 weeks owning to NBFC crisis. There are many times readers on this blog has been indicating them to alert when such situation arises. Hence it is my duty to inform all readers now that NBFC crisis would continue for some more time. I cannot hide this from readers and alert when there are delay in payment of interest or repayment of capital.
