Sebi eases norms for MF investments in derivatives

Existing mutual fund schemes will not require approval of a majority of unitholders to invest in derivatives segment provided the investors are given the exit option. Among other conditions, the relaxation, effective immediately, would be in place only if the mutual fund scheme concerned provides the investors 30 days time to exit the scheme without any charges. It would be applicable for existing mutual funds, whose Scheme Information Documents (SIDs) do not envisage investments in derivatives. 

The latest decision has been taken in view of the challenges involved in seeking the consent of a majority of unitholders due to their vast geographical spread. Prudent investment norms are in place for investment in derivatives by mutual funds, Sebi said.
