Should you invest in JM Financial Products NCD of August 2019?

Here are my few thoughts.

We are seeing NBFC companies delaying re-payments to the existing NCD holders. This company is still offering higher interest rates for these NCDs as NBFC companies are finding difficult to get credit/loans in India. NBFC Sector is a high risk sector now for any investments. I would advise investors to stay away from such high risk NCDs now. You can invest in some of the good large cap funds or consistent performing Multicap Mutual Funds that can provide high returns though not guaranteed.

Readers, do you feel these NCDs are worth investing?
