Paytm Money expects this to significantly increase the participation of retail users in IPOs via its platform. The company, in its press note, explained that the conventional application process for IPOs was designed around timings and date. Users are able to apply for an IPO only during select market hours over a window of three days.
TOP VIDEOS FOR YOUA large proportion of the investing community does not trade actively and is likely to be busy during market hours, missing out on some of these IPOs. This is particularly true in case of millennials and young investors, the company further added.
AdvertisementA retail investor can plan an IPO order 24x7 on days when pre-open IPO is enabled. The order is recorded in Paytm Money’s feature and sent to the exchange for processing whenever the market is open.
“Interest in IPOs has surged over the last couple of months, and we have seen cases where users have missed out from applying because of issues like tight schedules during market hours, and demand-led processing delays in the markets. We wanted to make the lives of our users easier and ensure that they don’t miss out on good opportunities,” Varun Sridhar, chief executive of Paytm Money.
Zomato is the first IPO on Paytm Money launched with this feature. The company claims to have registered thousands of orders for it over the last 2 days.
