Should you invest in TATA Capital Finance NCDs Aug 2019?

As we all are aware that interest rates on fixed income securities have already reached their lowest levels. With the recent rate cut announced by the RBI, we may witness further decline of bank deposit and Small Saving Schemes rates.

Hence, the interest rates offered on Secured NCDs look attractive when compared to other fixed income products like bank deposits or small saving schemes.

The current interest rates offered by on-going NCDs issues of Shriram Transport, Indiabulls and JM Financials offer in the range of 9.5 to 10.5%. Whereas, the interest rates on bank deposits are hovering around 7% to 7.5% for 3 year term deposits.

TATA Captial NCDs offer interest rates of 8.45% on 3 year NCD series. Given the interest rate outlook, good-will enjoyed by the TATA group and highest credit rating for this issue, you may consider investing in 3 year NCD series of this issue. Do not invest in unsecured and sub-ordinated 10 year NCD series.

Around same time last year, TATA Capital had come up with an NCD issue. It had then offered interest rates in the range of 8.70% to 9.10%. But, the interest rates have been on the downward trend, so it is now offering slightly lower rates comparatively.

Before investing in NCDs, kindlycalculate your post tax returnson debentures and take your decision, as the interest payouts are taxable.

Post-tax returns = Pre-Tax returns * { (100-Tax Rate) / 100 }

Also, kindly understand the risks associated with NCDs and then take informed decision.
