Muthoot Finance Limited NCD

Application form

Strengths of the company:

  • A long operating history, track record, management expertise, and Promoter support have established a strong brand name for it in the markets it serves. A strong brand name has contributed to its ability to earn the trust of individuals who entrust it with their gold jewelry and can be a key factor allowing it to expand.

  • Company has an AUM as of June 30, 2022, of Rs. 56,689.2 crores, and the number of Active customers as of June 30, 2022, are 51,73,166.

  • PAT to Avg. Loan Assets of Q1 FY2023 are 7.24, Capital Adequacy Ratio of 30.62, EPS of 19.98, and a Price-To-Earnings ratio of 10.7

  • The issue is rated ICRA AA+/Stable by ICRA Ltd. Instruments with this rating are considered to have a high degree of safety regarding timely servicing of financial obligations. Such instruments carry very low credit risk*.

Risk factors:

  • Increasing competition may have an adverse effect on the net interest margin, and, if the company is unable to compete successfully, its market share may decline.

  • Interest rates are sensitive to many factors, including the RBI’s monetary policies, domestic and international economic and political conditions, and other factors. If the company fails to adequately manage the interest rate risk in the future it could have an adverse effect on the net interest margin, thereby adversely affecting the business and financial condition.

  • Customer base comprises entirely of individual borrowers, who generally are more likely to be affected by declining economic conditions than large corporate borrowers. Any decline in the repayment capabilities of the borrowers may result in an increase in defaults, thereby adversely affecting the business and financial condition.


The coupon rates offered by the company amidst the rising interest rate scenario following higher inflation are fairly low. However, it could be a good deal for an investor looking for a regular income as it is an ICRA AA+/Stable by ICRA Ltd rated debt offer. The issue is to be done in Demat form only so the investor must open a Demat account with a trusted broker like Elite Wealth.
