India: Fintech Firms Set for IPOs but Face Challenges

Source: The Economic Times

India’s fintech sector is set for landmark Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) in the next five months as at least three startups – Paytm, Mobikwik, Policybazaar – are likely to raise up to Rs 28,000 crore ($3.7 billion) through public offers betting on favorable market dynamics where both institutional and retail investors are operating with abundance of liquidity.

According to industry experts, successful listings by these fintech companies could trigger a larger number of homegrown fintechs to make their debuts on Indian exchanges in the coming years mirroring the trends set by foreign counterparts listed on Nasdaq of the United States and China’s Shanghai Stock Exchange over the last two years.
