Nuvama Wealth makes lackluster debut
(14:42, 26 Sep 2023)
Nuvama Wealth Management, the demerged entity of Edelweiss Financial Services, had a lackluster debut on the National Stock Exchange (NSE) today. The stock opened at Rs 2,750 but faced profit booking from investors, resulting in a 5% drop and hitting the lower circuit at Rs 2,612.50. The stock's intraday high was recorded at Rs 2,790.

The demerger of Nuvama Wealth Management from Edelweiss Financial Services was approved by the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) and came into effect on 18 May 2023. The equity shares were allotted on 9 June 2023. This move was aimed to streamline the wealth management business and provide a separate identity to Nuvama Wealth Management.

Investors' response to the debut was subdued, possibly due to profit-taking and cautious market sentiment.
