Sir how can you call this loss making..it’s in profit for last 2 years!!
Don’t see only 1-2 years and conclude. One should always see consistent performance. Check FY20 nos
Fail to understand why a broking house/company should require funds through NCD from the open market. Does it mean that the Company’s operations do not sustain regular investment in technology upgradation (which is very bad) or that the Company requires money to either play in the market/leveraged operations or to give fund based credit to its clients/investors, again for leveraged operations (which is even more worse).
90% of the funds would be used for working capital requirements (it could be technology upgradation or for margin funding to customers)
previous ncds of edelweiss are giving yield of 11-12 % .my query is edelweiss retail finance ncd is giving more than 12% yield if purchase from secondary market .what is your view on same .
Check NCD ratings + financial performance before investing in any NCDs. While ratings can change, atleast it would give comfort you are not investing in low rated NCDs
but if any group company default anyways it will impact all group ncd so doesnt make much difference
