Should you invest in Mahindra & Mahindra Financial Services NCD of Jan 2019?

Refer my earlier articles about NCD’s and you would get the answer. You should ask these 4 questions before you want to invest in these NCDs.

1) Mahindra Financial Services offer both secured and unsecured NCDs. Investing in unsecured NCD’s would be high risk as they are not backed up with any assets of the company and in case of windup of the company due to performance issue, investors would get least preference in the repayment of these NCDs. Do you want to invest in such NCD’s then?

2) These NCD’s are for 39 months to 10 years. Do you want to park your money in high risk NCD for long term of 5 or 8 or 10 years? Parking money in high risk options for longer time is not advisable as no one can predict what happens to companies in the long term.

3) Mahindra & Mahindra Financial Services NCD offers 9.5% interest per annum. There are several banks which still offer 7.5% to 8% on their fixed deposits which carry little lower risk compared to NCDs. Should you invest in Mahindra Financial Services NCDs then?

4) Its NPAs are very high compared to other companies. In future there could be delays in payment of interest if they start writing off money and their profits shrink. Are you okay with this?

Conclusion: Mahindra Finance NCDs offer high interest rates. Secured NCDs are somewhat better compared to unsecured. If you are a high risk taker and willing to invest in such companies even after IL&FS  Scam, you can consider investing in Secured NCDs for 39 months or 5 years maximum. You should stay away from unsecured NCDs or NCDs that are for long term as we do not know how the company would perform in the long run.

Readers, do you feel these NCDs are worth investing?

Mahindra & Mahindra Financial Services NCD Jan 2019 Review

Suresh KP


  1. i applied through ASBA and i got Mahindra & Mahindra Financial Services NCD Jan 2019.
    now my query is can i sell this NCD in market time, ??
    i have 100 qty and i want to book profit.
    kindly suggest.

      1. Air you suggested me I can sell in open market but my query is there any penalty or hidden charges if I sell before maturity.?

        1. Hi Ankit, There is no penalty. However company would not buy your NCDs. These are purchased by any other buyers who is interested in the NCDs and can quote lower rate than Rs 1,000 bond rate.

  2. One important aspect that is missing is that one can apply ONLY through ASBA now. So your point of applying through IPO/NCD section of demat account is WRONG.

    Second have profits increased or decreased? You show an increase in numbers (almost 100%) but report REDUCED in your comments. You need to correct that.

    Third their Gross and Net NPAs do look on higher side. When you say these are “Very high” as compared to other NBFCs a quick comparision table will be very useful (atleast for 4-5 firms whose NCDs are currently in the market).
    Also since you write these commentaries frequently it can be used in future as well for reference post updating for latest numbers.

    1. Hello Mayank, here are my comments 1) ASBA is the facility. The process I indicated is to go to IPO/NCD section and when you apply your amount is blocked. Once company allots NCD your amount would get deducted from your account and NCD bonds would get credited. this process is ASBA. I indicated first step, you indicated second step. There is nothing wrong here 2) Comment corrected 3) The comparison with the company own NPA of last year vs 6 months ended is already given in financials section. Yes, comparison with peers would also gives good picture. Thanks for your valuable comments.

      1. thanks. Just to close the loop on 1st point, my point being brokers like Reliance who do not have a bank are NOT able to offer the same anymore through the route you have mentioned. Hence, for the same the same becomes obsolete. Hence, I suggested to include the ASBA aspect as well.
