Should you invest in Muthoot Homefin India NCD of April 2019?

Like I said earlier, please ask few questions before you want to invest in these NCDs.

1) Though  Muthoot Homefin India is offering secured NCDs, we are seeing that NBFC companies are delaying the interest payment due to the liquidity crunch in the company. Do you want to invest in such NCD’s then?

2) These NCD’s are for 24 months, 38 months, 60 months and 90 months tenure. Do you want to park your money in high risk NCD for 5 to 7.5 years? We do not know how the company would perform beyond 3-5 years, hence you should always invest in short term NCDs. You can look for 24 moths or 38 months secured NCDs as these are for short term and they are secured in nature.  

3)   Muthoot Homefin India NCD offers yield up to 10% interest per annum, however is high risk. If you are a high risk taker, investing in some of the diversified portfolio of large cap, diversified and balanced mutual funds can fetch you around 15% annualised returns.

Conclusion:  Muthoot Homefin India NCDs offers 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 recent financial crunch and Scams, you can consider investing in Secured NCDs for 24 months and 36 months tenure NCDs. However, you should be willing to take the risks indicated above.
