Analysts are positive on the fintech industry and believe they are poised to grow in the future.

“Fintech companies' demand is poised for growth on the back of rising internet penetration, higher disposable income, development of technology, low-cost infrastructure, government initiatives like UPI, etc. Going forward, India presents a huge opportunity for growth of fintechs. There will be huge growth potential for players in payments, lending, wealth, Insurance, etc. segments. We believe Fino Bank is one of the key beneficiaries of opportunities in the sector,” said analysts at Religare Broking.

However, some analysts are cautious towards the IPO considering the stiff competition in the industry.

“The company exists in a stiff competitive environment where companies like PayTM Payments Bank and India Post Payments bank exist and outperform in many aspects. We thus believe that the current growth momentum is difficult to sustain in the long term. Hence we give an “AVOID” rating to this IPO,” said a report by BP Equities.

Meanwhile, Jyoti Roy of Angel One said that, “Despite strong growth prospects, we believe that valuations do not justify the premium and hence we have a NEUTRAL recommendation to the IPO.”
