Conclusion: TATA Capital Finance Limited NCD’s of 2018 offers both secured and unsecured in nature. Several times, I advise investors to park money in securing NCD’s as they are safer compared to unsecured NCD’s. While banks are showing some signs of interest rates increase, the interest rates are still between 6% to 7.5% per annum, which are low compared to interest rates offered by these NCDs. Considering high interest rates and secured NCD’s in nature, one can consider investing in these NCD’s after assessing risk factors indicated above.  However, one should invest in them only for short to medium term. Don’t go for long term unsecured NCDs as we do not know how the company would perform in the long run.
