In the last few months SEBI has come up with important regulatory initiatives for the mutual fund industry such as:
- Categorization and rationalization of mutual fund schemes
- Adoption of total return index (TRI) to benchmark schemes
- Separation of investment advisory and mutual fund distribution
Recently SEBI has issued a consultation paper on proposed Amendments to the SEBI (Investment Advisers) Regulations, 2013. This news article provides further details.
India FinTech Forum is organising a Fintech Policy Roundtable to discuss the consultation paper on 22nd January, 2018.
Date: 22nd January, 2018
Time: 4pm to 6pm
Venue: ISME ACE, 3rd floor, One Indiabulls Centre, Lower Parel, Mumbai
Some of the proposed changes may positively or negatively affect fintech startups. It is important to communicate the feedback/ concerns of the fintech sector to SEBI so that these regulatory changes encourage innovation in the wealth management space.
We would love to hear from you and hope to see you at 4pm on 22nd January, 2018 (Monday).
