Invest in Corporate Deposits, RBI Bonds and NCD's.
A Corporate Deposit (FD) is an investment in a company for a fixed period of time at a prescribed rate of interest. Both, Financial and Non-Banking Finance Companies (NBFCs) raise capital via such deposits to use the money. The mobilized Deposits are governed by the Companies Act under Section 58A. These deposits are unsecured, which means if the company defaults, the investor cannot sell the documents to recover his capital, thus making it a bit risky investment option.
Interest is paid on a monthly/quarterly/half yearly/yearly or on maturity basis and is sent either through cheque or ECS facility.
Choosing a good company deposit scheme-Infinitum Wealth advisors help clients in choosing the best schemes for corporate deposits to gain maximum profit and avoid any loss.
We follow the above-mentioned criteria before suggesting a company deposit:
» we ignore the unrated Company Deposit Schemes and deposit schemes of little-known manufacturing companies. We check on our front the ‘A’ rating of the company to be eligible to accept public deposits as issued by RBI. Our advisors suggest you look at only AA or AAA schemes offered by growing firms of the nation.
» We thoroughly check rating grade, history, and reputation of the firm.
» Once you decide on a company as suggested by us, next we help you in choosing the schemes that have given a better return in the past. We recommend cumulative to regular income option, since the interest earned automatically gets reinvested at the same coupon rate giving upon better yields. And also gives you a lump-sum amount at one go.
» the best way is to make a shorter deposit of around 1 year to 3 years. In this way, you not only can keep a watch on the company’s rating and servicing but can plan to have your money back in case of an emergency.
» We do not suggest companies that don’t care about investor services like promptly sending interest warrants or the principal cheque.
» We do not bypass and invest directly just to earn an extra incentive. Our advisors work thoroughly to study the past trends of the company to have an idea of the future investments.
