Good Morning,

A new listing on NASDAQ is creating quite a stir — both in New York City as well as in the Indian SaaS ecosystem.

At the close of trade on Friday (September 24), Freshworks (trading under the ticker symbol 'FRSH')  was already the most bought stock by Indians, as per Vested Finance’s live stock tracker.

In data shared exclusively with YourStory, Vested Finance revealed that FRSH has traded more than popular stocks like Microsoft (MSFT), Shopify (SHOP), Salesforce (CRM), Amazon (AMZN), Apple (AAPL), Zoom (ZM), Adobe (ADBE), Facebook (FB), and Tesla (TSLA).

More than Rs 2 crore has been invested in FRSH since it got listed on September 22, when the SaaS unicorn, which made 10 percent of company stock available for retail buying, raised $1.03 billion at a valuation of over $10 billion.

"Ever since Freshworks got listed, the trend witnessed is phenomenal. Over the last three days, it has been the #1 stock on our platform. This shows that investors are riding the global wave and investing in big IPO stocks like that of Freshworks," Viram Shah, Co-founder and CEO, Vested told YourStory.
