The regulator has announced a few changes that impact the mutual fund, insurance and PMS industry.

Advertising code made flexible

Advertising rules to be made principle based. Also, the definition of advertisement for mutual funds is broadened to include all forms of communication that may influence investor’s decision.

AMCs had earlier requested SEBI to relax advertisement regulation as the stringent rules laid down by the regulator were resulting in cluttered advertisements.  Moreover, the ads were not able to convey the message to investors.  “According to the current guidelines, it consumes a lot of space and ads look cluttered and my message gets lost. SEBI is considering relaxing some of the advertisement rules,” a sales head of a top AMC had opined a few weeks back.

Minimum PMS investment raised to Rs. 25 lakh from Rs. 5 lakh

SEBI has also raised the minimum for new investors willing to enjoy portfolio management service (PMS). According to the new rule, minimum investment needed to open a PMS account is Rs. 25 lakh.
