Hello there

Have you ever been really excited about something, only to be bummed out when it didn’t live up to expectations? It happens sometimes, whether it’s a new restaurant that’s not as great as you heard, or checking out a popular attraction that looks way better on social media than in person.

I felt let down in those instances, but I imagine that pales in comparison to how disappointing it is when a company that lists on the stock market doesn’t perform as well as expected. After all, there’s a lot of painstaking work and effort involved with doing an initial public offering, and in the case of Indian fintech firm Paytm, it didn’t quite pay off.
