Five Star Business Finance IPO - Pros
  1. Five Star Business Finance has the fastest AUM growth among its peers, with over ₹3,000 crores in AUM, as well as strong growth and returns.

  2. One of the few institutions in the country that has developed an underwriting model that analyses the cash flows of small business owners and self-employed individuals in order to make loans to them.

  3. The company's calculated approach allows it to expand into previously untapped geographical areas.

  4. They have experienced and qualified promoters, as well as a highly professional management team backed by marquee investors.


Five Star Business Finance IPO - Cons
  1. A significant amount of capital is required to run the business, and the company obtains it from various external sources; thus, the entire business is entirely dependent on the timely availability of these funds.

  2. The main inherent risk is that the borrowers will not repay the loans, and the risk is higher in this case because the customer group is primarily middle- and lower-income, and there is a high likelihood of default among these small business owners and self-employed people.

  3. To add to the preceding point, many of the borrowers are first-time borrowers, which increases the risk of default.

  4. Interest rate volatility may have a negative impact on net interest income.
