ABOUT CORPORATE BONDS
What are Corporate Bonds
  • Corporate bonds are debt securities issued by companies, NBFCs, or corporations to raise capital.

  • Purpose: Lending money to the issuer, who pays fixed returns through interest and principal payments.

  • Payments: Bonds have a maturity date, with interest and principal payments made monthly, quarterly, or semi-annually at a predetermined rate.

  • Safety: Considered relatively safer than stocks/equities.

  • Credit Ratings: Independent agencies like CRISIL, ICRA, CARE assess financial health and assign credit ratings. Higher ratings indicate lower risk.

Risks Involved in Corporate Bonds

  • Credit risk: Corporate Bonds are generally capital-protected and carry investment-grade ratings, the bond issuer might not be able to pay back in extreme circumstances such as bankruptcy.
  • Liquidity Risk: Corporate Bonds are exchange-listed, they may not be actively traded. Exiting before maturity may require the investor to find an alternate buyer. Grip Invest does not guarantee the ability to find the buyer and a fair exit price.
  • Interest rate risk: Corporate Bonds exhibit an inverse relationship between interest rates and price. Rising interest rates may cause bond prices to decline, potentially resulting in losses if sold before the date of maturity.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is Grip enabling Corporate Bonds investments at lower ticket sizes?

The bonds selected by Grip have a face value ranging from INR 10,000 to INR 1 Lac. Grip is not fractionalizing any of these bonds but is selling at minimum lot sizes.
Grip acts as a distributor of the bonds sourced from partner institutions such as Oxyzo Financial Services, etc.
Ratings represent the creditworthiness of the bond after evaluating key metrics including the issuer’s financial strength, previous track record and liquidity.
There are 2 types of bonds: Listed and Unlisted. Listed bonds are traded through an exchange such as BSE or NSE. Unlisted bonds are not traded on an exchange but through the over-the-counter (OTC) market. Market makers facilitate the buying and selling of unlisted bonds in the OTC market. Because they are not exchange traded, unlisted bonds can be less liquid than listed bonds.

 

Secured corporate bonds are backed by collateral that the issuer may sell to repay you if the bond defaults. The issuer pledges specific collateral—such as property, equipment, or other assets that it owns—as security for the bond. If the issuer defaults, holders of secured bonds will have a legal right to sell the collateral to satisfy their claims.
Bonds are tradable instruments on the stock exchange. This means that there is no lock-in on your bond investment. If you want to sell the instrument before maturity, you can do so in the secondary market at the market price (market price may vary from par-value).
