Should you invest in Chemmanur Credits and Investments NCD Feb-24 issue?

  • These NCDs offer high interest rates up to 11.5% and yield works out to 12.25%.  These interest rates are attractive.
  • On the other hand, the company has a BBB credit rating, which is considered as a low credit rating. Also, company profits are on declining mode. Investors should not forget about NBFC’s that defaulted investors on NCD payments and companies which have delayed or delaying NCD interest payments to its investors.
  • Like I always indicated earlier, investors should invest in A / AA / AAA rated NCD bonds, which are safe compared to low credit rating bonds while the risk is not 100% eliminated.

Personally, I would like to avoid such NCD bonds for now.

    1. Have they indicated anything about balance payment in the email ? Ideally if they say final settlement, then you don’t get any further money from them.

  2. dear Suresh, frankly why this sudden rush for deposits by fintechs/nbfcs ? do they anticipate any change of norms or rules ! Tom
