Indiabulls Consumer Finance NCD May 2019 Review

Suresh KP


  1. But in muthoot you can hardly get anythin above 10%,whereas in indiabulls its very much possible to get above 13-14%.For slightly extra risk you get much higher returns.

  2. Indiabull is reputed company. But is NCD is in the name of Indiabulls Consumer finance ltd newly entering for various loan services. if you reffer their website in 2014 this company in the name of Shivshakit finance pvt ltd. then shiv shakti finance ltd in 2015 shiv shakti financial services in 2016 IVL Finance company in 2017, India Bulls IVL finance in 2018. Indiabull consumer finance ltd in 2019. what will be the new name for 2020 & 2021 etc? offcourse it is pay high ROI. Offering loan is has so many companies, how this company will survive the compitation. I want to invest for Indiabull please advise..

    1. NCDs would be in the name of Indaibulls consumer finance ltd only. It is high risk as of now. If you are high risk investor and still considering investing post recent Financial crisis in NBFC segments, you can invest.

  3. On any day, if there is a comparison between Muthoot Finance and Indiabulls Consumer Finance NCD – both having similar credit rating of AA Positive/Stable, I would prefer Muthoot Finance only because they are having solid gold jewelry as security which would increase its value over a period of time due to rise in underlying gold prices. Whereas the security cover for a pure personal consumption loan would be nothing as happens in most cases.
    And therefore, in my opinion, the Author must spell out this basic difference since he has made a comparison of both the issues in his article.
