Investors who like taking risks, or those who are risk tolerant with good management, can definitely take up Navi NCDs. For the first 18 months of the NCD, the annual return has been set at 9.5 percent. And 9.75 percent every year for the next 27 months. If investors choose the monthly option, they would receive 9.2 percent for the first 18 months and 9.4 percent for the next 27 months.
Although the risks are substantial, any fixed-income, risk-tolerant investor who is prepared to face them should do so. The issue will expire on June 10, so make your decision as soon as possible.

This representation is not correct. There are two separate NCD.
If you invest in 18 month NCD, you get 9.5% and if you invest in 27 month NCD you get 9.75% interest rate.

I wouldn’t buy securities of a company who’s products I will never buy.

Delinquencies may rise in the personal and home loans segment as layoffs are starting. The mutual fund business is a cash burner. Who knows if the company is still there after 18 months to repay the principal.
