      MFL is a well managed company and loans given against gold are pretty secure with the gold as the collateral. Fundamentals of MFL are satisfactory and investors may invest some part of their debt allocation in this NCD.
     As gold loans are of tenure less than a year but this company is issuing NCDs for a period up to 5 years, which could cause asset-liability mismatch in future especially considering the higher coupon rates of this NCD; hence Investors are advised to opt for option 1 ( 24 months tenure) to be on safer side.
      Traditional investors should read the following post to understand the basis difference between FD’s and NCD’s.
