There is no official word from Jio Financial Services about the bond issue yet. According to a Reuters report, the company is in the process of obtaining credit ratings and other necessary approvals before issuing the bonds. Once all the approvals are received and the credit rating is done, the way to issue the bond will be cleared.
It is expected to receive a triple-A rating.
The report quoted experts as saying that Jio Financial Services could get a AAA credit rating as the promoters have a strong stake in the company. Bond prices will depend on factors such as tenure and the company’s balance sheet at the time of issue. It may be 10-20 basis points higher than Reliance Industries.
