Prudent Corporate Advisory Services IPO: Should you Invest?

“The company operates in an underpenetrated Indian asset management industry, which has clocked a CAGR of more than 20 per cent. Prudent has an experience of over 2 decades that helped to integrate knowledge and expertise in financial product distribution with technology and provide a comprehensive business platform. It offers digital wealth management solutions through platforms, namely FundzBazar, PrudentConnect, Policyworld, WiseBasket and CreditBasket. Each platform is designed to provide mutual fund distributors (MFDs) and the retail investors a comprehensive set of financial service solutions, based on their investment needs. Although the company has a strong financial track record, innovative technology, massive PAN India distribution network, the IPO is aggressively priced and hardly leaves anything meaningful on the table for investors with a mediumterm perspective," said Reliance Securities.
