Should I invest in ICICI Pru Life IPO?
Personally I am not an IPO expert or have enough knowledge on IPOs so far. But recently I have started reading and understanding how they actually work. I am planning to invest in this IPO for the first time and reason behind this is the robust structure & company profile of ICICI Pru Life. They are one of the largest company in insurance sector if you forget about LIC of India. And I think this kind of IPO in this insurance sector is also the first one.
Although there could be many negatives like in future how company will perform, any IRDA or insurance rule which may impact company performance or any competitor may give huge challenge etc. But still I am thinking to give it a try as per my understanding. I believe investing in IPO will depending on your risk profile only. Don’t listen to anyone if you are not able to handle the ups & down of this segment.
