Upcoming IPO in March 2022: All you need to know!
The first month of 2022 started slowly with only two companies coming up with their IPOs. In Feb, only Vedant Fashion launched its IPO. The primary reason for low IPOs compared to 2021 is high volatility in the market. The ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine has shifted investors’ interest from equity to other asset classes.
The much-awaited LIC IPO may also get delayed now. If the situation improves, we can expect the below IPOs in March:
