Innovative perpetual debt instruments for Tier 1 Capital

POSTED BY ronniejoshua ON March 15, 2014 9:10 am ONE COMMENT

I would like to know about these instruments, I have little basic understanding of these. These instruments are predominantly used by banks to raise either TIER I/II Capital. They are perpetual bonds.

Questions

1. Are these open for retail Investors?

2. Are these rated instruments?

3. Does these bonds has a secondary market?

4. are these bonds trade-able in the secondary market? price itself can result a huge capital gain???

5. What are the frequency of coupon payments?

Need to know

if these are better than the FD of banks?   e.g. some of these offer 10.55% return, which  over a long period of time i think are really good, given if these are secured(assuming I am completely risk averse)

Note: Tried Searching the Web, gone through RBI documents but couldn’t find the above details.
