Is Edelweiss Financial Services NCD Safe for investment?

These NCD’s offer high interest rates. Though these days, banks have increased the FD interest rates; however, these are still low compared to the interest rates offered in these NCDs. These NCDs are rated as Acuite AA-/Negative by Acuite Ratings and CRISIL AA-/Negative by CRISIL Ratings. Also, secured NCD bonds are relatively safer compared to unsecured bonds while risk is not eliminated.

On the other hand, credit ratings may change in future. In the last 5 years, company revenues have fallen and margins are shrinking, however, started regaining now from FY23. One should not forget about NBFC companies defaulting on NCD investor’s payments in the last few years.

High risk investors who understand all these risk factors can invest in these NCDs. However, investors can avoid long term NCD bonds of 120 months and opt for short to medium tenure bonds as we do not know how such companies would turn in the long term.

  1. Sir,
    Is there any way to find out credit ratings in the last 5 years or so, so as to fully understand the implications of changing credit ratings and its impact on the interest rate and fund raising.

    1. As per my knowledge we do not have any database Kamalji. One way is you can use search option on our blog which can list NCD’s with dates and you can check older date NCD’s and the rating details in them.
