Should you invest in Tata Capital Housing Finance NCDs in January, 2020?


Tata Capital Housing Finance Limited NCD’s of 2020 offers both secured and unsecured in nature. Several times, I advise investors to park money in securing NCD’s as they are safer compared to unsecured NCD’s. Banks are offering low interest rates now. Considering high interest rates and secured NCD’s in nature, one can consider investing in the secured NCD’s after assessing risk factors indicated above.  However, one should invest only for short to medium term. Don’t go for long term NCDs or unsecured as we do not know how the company would perform in the long run.
