What Does Listing of Shares Like Zomato, Paytm, Nykaa Mean for Investors?

New Home in Various ETFs

Gaurav Garg, Capitalvia, said that this is a positive news as a lot of index funds and ETFs will now do churning and include these stocks in their portfolio.

Divam Sharma, Founder at Green Portfolio, SEBI Registered Portfolio Management Service Provider, said: “This addition will give the much-needed push to the new age start-ups which have faced the burnt post their debut over the last few months. There are many ETFs and active funds which follow Nifty next 50 index for allocating capital. These high-growth tech businesses have disrupted the ecosystem and established a large market share. We have seen the market take time to adjust the valuations of these companies. However, the investor interest to invest in such companies is prevalent. We believe that many of such companies will lead their way to Nifty in the coming years, replacing the traditional business models.”

Only for the High-Risk Appetite Investors

Ashis Sarangi, SEBI Registered Investment Advisor at Pickright Technologies, said: “Due to the fact that ETF managers are required to buy these shares, which may increase volume for the equities, there may be a little upward price movement while rebalancing. Still, we believe that, at this point in time, only investors with a high-risk appetite should consider buying these stocks in a SIP mode, with a 2 per cent – 4 per cent allocation in the portfolio. The current correction has provided the investors with better stock investment opportunities against these companies.”
