Investors want investment strategies that, while providing significant returns, control liquidity, and risks. Debentures are long-term financial instruments issued by a firm with a contract to pay fixed interest to a creditor for a defined period. There are two types of debentures, namely convertible and non-convertible debentures (NCD). Non-convertible debentures (NCD) are those that can not be exchanged into equity or bonds. Interest rates for the NCD depend on the company which issues the NCD. Individuals, banking companies, primary dealers, other corporate bodies registered in or incorporated in India and unincorporated bodies may hold NCD investments. 

What is NCD Investment:-

Non-convertible debentures(NCDs) are a financial instrument used for long-term capital raising by businesses. This is achieved by means of a public question. NCDs are a fixed-tenure debt instrument, and individuals who invest in them receive daily interest at a certain rate.

Power Finance Corporation Limited (PFC) NCD offering:-  

Power Finance corporation limited is one of the leading financial institutions in India, focused on the power sector. The Company is a listed government of India (GoI) company and a public financial institution under the Companies Act, 2013.
