HUDCO - Tax Free Bonds Public Issue - Product Note.pdf Download this file

Highest coupon… last opportunity as benchmark G-sec yields already corrected


We believe the bond is a good investment option for a fixed income investor given its tax exempt status, higher coupon rate and issuance from a Mini Ratna government company. G-Sec yields which are a benchmark for determining coupon on tax free bonds have corrected by 15-20bps. New issues will be coming at lower coupon. Therefore HUDCO tax free bonds provides the last opportunity to lock in higher rates.

Hence, for a retail investor, it is advisable to lock the current coupon rates. Since the interest income on the bond is tax exempt, the pre-tax yield works out to 11.34% and 11.60% for 10years and 15years respectively, which is higher compared to 8-9.5%, offered on bank FD or other stable bonds. Hence bond also scores over other fixed income instruments.
