SEBI Proposal May Open Door For Indian MFs To Invest In Select Overseas Funds


In a move that could unlock new global opportunities for domestic investors, market regulator SEBI has floated a proposal to allow mutual funds in to invest in select overseas funds. As per the plan detailed in a recent consultation paper, Indian MFs would be permitted to invest in foreign funds and unit trusts with up to 20% exposure to Indian securities.

Currently, Indian fund houses can only invest directly in eligible foreign stocks and bonds. However, many indexes and funds have a sizeable allocation to the booming Indian . SEBI notes that the benchmark MSCI Emerging Markets Index counts our nation for over 18% of its portfolio. Similarly, JPMorgan's emerging markets fund dedicates approximately 15% to Indian investments.

By opening a channel for domestic MFs to participate in such schemes, SEBI aims to give local investors improved access to India's rising profile on the global investments map. International diversification could also enhance returns for fund holders over the long run. To ensure proper oversight, strict conditions have been proposed around manager selection, portfolio disclosure and timeframe for rebalancing overseas exposures breaching limits.

If approved, the move would complement India's growing economic stature worldwide. With our markets offering strong prospects, it is logical for local savers to gain supported routes to benefit from rising global interest. By balancing opportunities and safeguards, SEBI's proposal seeks an optimal approach respecting both openness and prudence. This could pave the way for Indian fund managers and investors to explore newer investment horizons while continuing to back domestic progress.
