Pure yield structures offer a superior way of investing in fixed income debt. These structures are designed for investors seeking both the capital protection* as well as the fixed return on maturity. These structures provide higher yield with better visibility of returns in comparison to other fixed income debt instruments.
Since nature of these instruments is – listed secured market linked debentures, returns more than 1 year are treated as capital gains and hence applicable taxation is lower in comparison to traditional fixed income instruments. To make these instruments behave like pure yield debentures, fixed returns payoff is linked to distant and least probable market conditions (e.g.: Fixed return is linked to Nifty not correcting more than 75% from initial level)
