This venture aims to operate in wealth management activities, initially establishing a wealth management company and later a brokerage firm in India. India's wealth management and broking sector is witnessing significant growth, driven by the rising number of demat accounts in recent years.

On March 28, the stock was added to the Nifty Next 50 index. According to Nuvama, the stock could be the biggest beneficiary of the latest semi-annual adjustment exercise, potentially resulting in inflows of up to $80 million.
