What does CRISIL do

Some of the debt instruments rated by CRISIL include loans, commercial papers, non-convertible debentures, bank hybrid capital instruments, asset-backed securities, mortgage-backed securities, bonds, and certificates of deposit.

CRISIL helps investors:

  • Invest their money with credible financiers
  • Evaluate the financier’s ability to service their interest and principal payment obligations
  • Access an unbiased, objective, and independent opinion on the instrument’s safety

How CRISIL ratings affect depositors

CRISIL ratings enable you to sieve through the seemingly attractive offers available across different companies and opt for the right financier. There is no direct impact of CRISIL ratings on FD interest rates, but you should strive for higher interest rates coupled with a high CIBIL rating.
