MUMBAI: India Infoline Housing Finance (IIFL) launched a non-convertible debenture (NCD) issue today to raise upto Rs 200 crore in a six-year debt offering up to Rs 12.68 per cent yield.
The issue of unsecured redeemable non-convertible debentures is eligible for tier-II capital of the company, it said in a statement.
IIFL Chairman S Sridhar said that it would focus on the growing home loan and mortgage assets while keeping a close eye on the quality of assets. The NCD issue would further enable the company improve its asset profile and strengthen its capital base.
IIFL Group Managing Director R Venkataraman said that as part of prudent asset allocation, investors should have exposure to fixed income. This issue offers attractive options for retail investors seeking regular cash flows.
