Fixed Deposit interest rates: SBI may have cut rates, but these NBFCs offer up to 9 pct return on your bank FDs
Fixed Deposit: SBI FD interest rates have been slashed by 15 bps recently, but there are some NBFCs that are giving much higher returns than other leading banks.
Fixed Deposit: The State Bank of India (SBI) has slashed its long-term fixed deposit (FD) interest rates by 15 bps and from 10th January 2020, SBI FD interest rates from one year to up to 10 years will fetch 0.15 per cent less and now the highest SBI FD interest rate is 6.10 per cent only. In such a case, those who want to invest in bank fixed deposits, there are other options available for them where they can earn up to 9 per cent or more than that provided they change their investment banker. There are some Non Banking Financial Companies (NBFC) that are still giving higher returns to the bank FD investors. Bajaj Finance, PNB Small Finance, Fincare Small Finance Bank, etc. are some of such options available for the bank FD investors.
For bank fixed deposit investors who want higher returns on their investment PNB Housing Finance can be an option, they can think of. The NBFC is giving 8 per cent interest on the fixed deposit for the period of 12 months to 35 months, its FD interest rate is 8.10 per cent fixed deposits for the period of 36 months to 59 months. PNB Housing Finance is giving 8.15 per cent returns on fixed deposits for the period of 60 months to 84 months. The tentative yield to the fixed deposits up to 47 months, 59 months, 71 months and 84 months are 8.77 per cent, 9.14 per cent, 9.59 per cent and 10 per cent respectively. If the fixed deposit is for the 10 years, the tentative returns can be up to 10 per cent, which is around 2 per cent higher than the highest yielding debt investment funds.
