Sebi may let portfolio managers in derivatives


“We are looking at other instruments like exchange traded derivatives for investments by portfolio managers,” Sebi Executive Director R K Nair said.
The regulator has laid down various norms for portfolio managers to protect investor’s interest.

Sebi is looking at other structured products besides listed securities, Nair said at a seminar on Portfolio Management Services organised by Indian Chamber of Commerce here on Friday.

At present, there are 247 portfolio managers registered with Sebi and total assets under management by these entities stand at Rs 2.72 lakh crore.
Sebi, he added, is also trying to usher in more reforms in the primary and secondary markets to make the capital markets more fair, transparent and inclusive. To prevent any scandal taking place in the realm of portfolio management, Nair said, SEBI had asked portfolio managers to de-pool their accounts of listed securities from those of their clients.
