An IPO investment is a great long-term investment. This is the case where you locate a good company, find out its scope and buy the initial offering at low prices. As years pass and the company carves a niche for itself, the shares you bought will be occupying a big, fat value. So when you hear of an IPO, inspect the company’s prospects and its validity and scope for sustenance in the future. If it scores well on all aspects, Do Not Miss Out on it! As for the news of IPOs, do not worry about that. We’ll keep you updated on the upcoming IPOs, so that you can invest in promising companies.

To make the buying process easier, we framed a step-by-step guide on how to buy IPOs. Applying for IPOs is as simple as your other FundsIndia transactions. All you need is a UPI ID or net banking facility. Go through the following steps, buy the IPO and give your portfolio an upgrade it deserves.
