While the NFO or new fund offerings of mutual funds are conceptually different from IPOs, the logic is approximately the same. NFOs are when the fund house comes out with a new offering for a fixed period of time at a fixed price. Once the NFO is closed, the open ended funds would start offering buy and sell at continuous NAV based price of the fund while the closed ended funds would list on the stock exchanges.
