Weekend Roundup – Feb. 15th 2014

 

 

  • According to SEBI, financial planners can no longer distribute mutual funds or sell any products.  Very few planners have bothered to comply with this norm making their practice illegal: Take note… take care (w.r.t. SEBI RIA Regulations) Only time will tell the fate of those who have not complied with this regulation.
  • You can check the list of Sebi registered investment advisors from here: http://www.sebi.gov.in/sebiweb/home/detail/26311/no/List-of-Registered-Investment-Advisors
  • Although this move is designed to remove conflict of interest, a SEBI registered financial planner is free to transfer the mutual fund distribution business to a relative/friend.

    Actually Because of you and other members in our fb group My entire family is investing via Direct and it was little tedious at that time to stop everything and start one more time,

    Thanks for enlightening everyone!
