Investors may grow more cautious of buying money market funds after IL&FS Financial Services Ltd. defaulted on its short-term borrowings, according to the Indian unit of Moody\u2019s Investors Service. IL&FS Financial Services couldn\u2019t repay some of its commercial papers on due date, though the company later settled the debt on Aug. 31, an exchange filing showed on Thursday. The default is likely to drive risk aversion among investors who have been piling into the commercial paper market as rising bond yields make long-term debt unattractive. \u201cIn the near term, expect investors to look at the mutual fund scheme fact sheet more closely before taking investment decisions,\u201d said Karthik Srinivasan, the Mumbai-based group head of financial sector ratings at ICRA Ltd., the local unit of Moody\u2019s. \u201cWhile there would be more caution, we are not expecting commercial paper rates to rise or markets to dry up.\u201d Issuance of commercial papers rose almost 50 percent from the previous year to a record 4.9 trillion rupees in three months to June 30, according to data compiled by ICRA. IL&FS Financial Services won\u2019t be able to issue commercial papers until Feb. 28, as the Reserve Bank of India\u2019s rules ban delinquent issuers from accessing the market for six months from the day of default, the filing showed.
