TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) is planning to limit investors’ exposure to shares and equity derivatives in line with their net worth, said three people with knowledge of the development. The move is aimed at preventing individuals from going overboard on equity investments, considered riskier than bonds.
Sebi has sounded out stock brokers on the proposal, according to market participants. It wants investors’ assets certified by chartered accountants and brokers, who will decide the extent of their equity exposure, said one broker.
