Why to invest in Edelweiss Financial Services NCD?

1) This NCD offer attractive interest rates where investors can get interest up to 10.1% per annum.

2) It issues secured NCDs. Its secured NCDs are safe compared to unsecured NCDs. In case company gets wind-up/shut down for some reason, secured NCD investors would get preference in repayment of capital along with interest as those backed up by assets of the company. Hence it is safe to invest in such secured NCD options.

3) It generates consistent profits in the last 4 years (standalone). However, one should note that its consolidated nos show they incurred losses in FY20. Investing in consistent profit making companies would help NCD interest to get seamless interest payments and repayment of their capital.

Is Edelweiss NCD Safe for investment?

Investors might be thinking whether it is safe to invest in these NCDs?

These NCD’s offer high interest rates. Banks are offering low interest rates on fixed deposits hence investors would get tempted with such NCDs. These NCDs are rated as Acuite AA-/Negative by Acuite Ratings and CRISIL AA-/Negative by CRISIL Ratings.

On other hand, such credit ratings may change in future without any notice. One should not forget about NBFC companies defaulting NCD investors payments in the last few years.

Like I indicated earlier, investors should always invest in AAA / AA / A rated NCDs if they are looking for safe NCD investments.  Since it meets this criteria, high risk investors can invest in these secured NCDs and get high returns.

  1. Thank you Mr.Suresh KP for your informative article on Edelweiss NCD. I have already invested Rs. 5 Lakhs in Edelweiss Bond. Is it safe to invest(additional 5 lakhs) further in the recently floated NCDs ? I am a senior citizen with moderate risk bearing capacity I would appreciate your advise in this regard. Thanks

    1. Hello Gajendran, I hope you have gone through the risk factors of investing in such NCDs. These are high risk. Since you are moderate risk taker, you should stay away from these NCD bonds.

  2. The interest rate they r offering is way to low when compared to their rating and risk. 8.5% for 2 years is low rate

  3. It is requested to kindly give profitability figures at consolidated level only as this reflects the overall working of the company. Like you said, these kind of companies and for that matter any other company also, would have good number of subsidiaries and therefore it would be perfectly ok to consider only consolidated figures. Against a standalone profit of 82.5 for FY 2020, like, as you said, they incurred loss at the consolidated level.

    Good companies, even with SEBI rules to publish only standalone figures for their quarterly reporting, always report consolidated figures.

    1. Sure Kamal. Generally the info is extracted from NCD prospectus, if not available, I visit company portal and extract it. But point taken, would add it going forward

  4. Every year they issue a NCD scheme. I invested since 2017 onwards, so far their interests are paid very perfectly. Though they pay interest on time, the only worry is that they issue under two/three company names that is confusing, but so far they are paying good. The name of Edelwess Fiance & Investment is going to change to Nuvama Wealth Finace limited as per their information. Can you please inform How the name change will affect previous and future NCDs. Is there any implications in it, If you can throw much light on this would be helpful to all. Thank you sir.
