Should you invest in KLM Axiva Finvest NCD of 2019?


KLM Axiva Finvest is offering Secured NCDs of Tranche-II issue that offers high interest rates up to 12% and yield up to 12.4%. Banks are reducing the interest rates month on month and the interest rates are between 6% to 8% per annum. Such interest rates are low compared to interest rates offered by these NCDs.

However, low credit rating of these NCDs is considered as HIGH RISK. Due to lower credit rating, such companies would find it difficult to get funding and would offer the highest interest rates to the general public for such NCDs. In future, there are greater chances that such companies default in payment of interest or repayment of capital itself. Currently we already see NBFC crisis. Considering all these factors, investors should stay away from such HIGH RISK NCDs as of now.

    Hi KP,

    A secured NCD is backed by the issuing company’s assets. This means that the company has to fulfil its debt obligation whatsoever. This makes secured NCDs safer since they have a lower default risk. Considering this is secured NCD, investor can go for 400 days tenure which is still giving 11% returns. Please provide your views.

    • Hello Deepak, Secured NCDs means these are secured. However, you are seeing the DHFL crisis now. They are not able to pay interest to such secured NCDs. We don’t know when these secured NCD investors would get paid for interest (forget about principal). You might get money, but there is risk as you don’t know when you would get it in such crisis.
