However, in the absence of a peer comparison for these companies in India, Prithvi Haldea, founder chairman, Prime Database says, investors should take cue from institutional investors who will do the due diligence. But, in the absence of peer comparison, other than for firms like RBL Bank and Interglobe, the call for due diligence is growing louder. While six companies including RBL Bank filed their draft red herring prospectus with the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) in the recent weeks, these statements broadly speak of the newness of the segments they operate in and also the kind of risk that investors may be exposed to if they choose to invest in them.

He added that once they enter the next cycle of making sustainable profits then retail investors should look at them as an opportunity to get in.
