Investors can actually double their investment in just 5 and 1/2 years with this NCD. Muthoot Finance has made consistent profits, and this is a secured NCD issue which means that certain assets of the company will be attached to the NCD in case of default. However, this doesn’t mean guarantee of any kind, and if it comes to a default then investors might get less than the face value of the bonds. We would advice investors to keep a balanced portfolio with assets in different instruments even in fixed income asset class.
