#FF11 Big News for Brokers: SEBI Considers Allowing Investments in Non-Securities Businesses hashtag

SEBI is exploring ways for stockbrokers to invest their surplus funds in businesses beyond securities and commodities. This could be a game-changer for the broking industry, opening doors to exciting new ventures in fintech, technology, and even real estate.

Here’s the lowdown:
— Current regulations: Existing rules prohibit brokers from engaging in non-core businesses.
— SEBI’s proposal: Two options are being considered:
— Investing through a separate holding company: This would create a clear separation between broking activities and other investments.
— Paying dividends and using the proceeds: This approach would be simpler but incur tax implications.
— Industry’s perspective: Brokers see this as an opportunity to utilize their surplus funds and diversify their portfolios.
— Challenges: Concerns remain regarding potential impact on brokers’ liquidity and potential conflicts of interest.
— This is a developing story, and the final decision from SEBI is awaited. Stay tuned for further updates!
