These NCDs are secured in nature and offer high interest rates. However, investing in NCDs in NBFC companies is a high risk in the last few quarters. Investing in NCD’s for long term of 10 years would be more risky. Since it offers 2 years to 5 years tenure NCDs also, high risk investors can invest in these NCDs. One can ignore 10 years NCDs as we do not know how the company would perform in the long run.

Alternatively, you can invest in a diversified portfolio of mutual funds that can provide high returns with similar risk though not guaranteed.
