Should you invest in IIFL Home Finance NCD of Tranche-I issue of July 2021?

Here are our views.

1) IIFL Home Finance NCDs are rated as AA / AA+ and offers high interest rates up to 10%. However, these NCDs are unsecured. Investment in unsecured NCDs is high risk.

2) One should not forget about NBFC crisis that started 3 years back. Your interest payment or repayment of capital might get delayed if invested in the NBFC companies.

3) Investing for long term of 7.25 years in these unsecured NCDs would be high risk as we do not know the company status in such long term.

If you are a high-risk investor and willing to consider all the risks indicated above, you can invest in these NCDs. I would re-iterate again that these are high risk, hence invest only a small portion in such investment options.

  1. These are unsecured subordinated NCDs and therefore risky and should be avoided particularly in view of precarious economic condition and growth risk due to pandemic and tapering off of the global stimulus packages some day in near future.

    1. Under the resolution plan by Piramal, secured NCD holders of DHFL have to take almost 70% haircut. So secured or unsecured makes a difference only in paper, actually nothing..

      1. Yes, I agree. In case of default and IBC coming into play, it does not make any difference whether your NCDs are secured or unsecured.
        However, I am sure, IBC /CoC in case of DHFL would not have allowed the “same” 70% haircut both in case of secured as well as unsecured NCDs. If that had been the case, that’s the travesty of law/IBC/Coc proceedings.
