Long story short. SEBI dont know what they dont know. They are the most confused lot and making others confuse also. They want to kill both with one bullet like Rajni kant. We need to create our nuisance value because that is the only value , which is heard in India.

Yes this indication is the great pleasure for us. Further judiciary has permitted SEBI to reinitiate the process of forming SRO for us, that will give us identity. It seems that year 2018 will be very good. Now if our brokerage also becomes the prerogative of SEBI instead of AMC - similar across industry , the concern of GST will also be resolved . We will be able to distribute funds solely on merits of fund , requirement of client and will have the identity and respect both.

Nicely explained. Thanks to Mr Vijay for updating different points of SEBI RIA Regulations. Also Thanks to FIFA for their efforts.

Raghav Taparia ARN NO :Kavya Finvest Mumbai, 03 Jan 2018

Does this note suggests that a ARN Holder who is also a sub broker for shares in his firms name is not allowed? Both are in my firms name. I also dristribute bonds and etf (bharat etf) for National Distributors in my firms name. Does this mean i have register as a RIA now? A sub-broker also gives incidental advise regarding shares but is not required to be registered as a RIA. Can someone clarify?

Milind Chitnis ARN NO :ARN-1837 Mumbai, 03 Jan 2018

Does this mean that MFD or (even his family member) will not be able to sell other products like insurance, bonds, FDs, PMS ? Also can a regulator say that an adult family member should not do a particular type of business? Also if a MFD is also CFP; is he "planner" or not? Because his certification says Chartered Financial Planner? Interesting thought this !!!

Good start for Mutual Fund

SATYANARAYAN ARN NO :103393 chennai, 03 Jan 2018

INDIA NEEDS ATLEAST 200,000 ARN HOLDERS TO SERVICE RETAIL POPULATION FOR MUTUAL FUND. ARN/EUIN HOLDERS SHOULD BE ACCOUNTABLE/RESPONSIBLE FOR DISTRIBUTING/ADVISING MUTUAL FUND. SEBI SHOULD ALLOW EUIN HOLDERS TO ADVISE ONLY MUTUAL FUND, IRDA TO ADVISE INSURANCE, PFRDA HOLDERS TO ADVISE PENSION SCHEMES, ETC. IF ONE WANTS TO DO MORE PRODUCTS LIKE EQUITY, DERIVATIVE, PMS, AIF, MF, ETC SHOULD BECOME AN RIA. KYC OF EVERY EUIN /ARN SHOULD BE MADE COMPULSORY AND THEN KYD IS NOT REQUIRED.

DEBRAJ SENGUPTA ARN NO :ARN-38509 Kolkata, 03 Jan 2018

A very good and timely move by SEBI especially when new breed of clients & MFDs are flocking to market. Now, the campaign " MUTUAL FUND SAHI HAIN" is also equally relevant for vast pool of IFA MFDs. Banks & NDs can always change course because of Financial muscle and reach they have. Now the earlier hybrid model which was nothing but a Jugaad mentality among all class of intermediaries, big or small would have cause more heart burns for end consumers. SEBI has rightfully corrected the anomalies. A niche business like Pure RIA also has huge scope in coming days as India will be home of a few crore Multi millionaires who would demand better product and better service and would be price-densitive.

VENKATRAMAN ARN NO :ARN-103104 CUDDALORE, 03 Jan 2018

The article is excellent. Easy to understand for small IFA sorry MFD.

Shailesh Sampat ARN NO :91276 Nashik, 03 Jan 2018

I think assuming that this paper is a ver 2 would be wrong. As the draft of the letter is like this is to be read in addition of the last 2 papers, each paper is connected to last paper and only. Sebi has modified certain points as per the suggestions arrived from the MFDs. This will be early to think this is a BIG Gift from SEBI to MFDs. Still there are 2 to 3 points to be cleared then it will be balanced format in which both RIAs and MFDs will work without disturbing each other. I have already submitted my points to the sebi.

Srikanth Matrubai ARN NO :51423 Bangalore, 02 Jan 2018

Indeed a BIG BIG thanks to FIFA for their tireless efforts in making this a reality
