  • Mutual funds’ incentive for small city outreach in limbo after a year

    More than a year after suspending the beyond-top-30 incentives, the capital market regulator SEBI has shelved the decision to revive it, as the industry could not device effective checks and balances to prevent its misuse. Last February, SEBI directed mutual fund companies to keep the small-town linked sop of additional expense ratio in abeyance, citing a lack of a system-driven mechanism to check the abuse of the incentive structure. To promote financial inclusion through increased penetration of mutual funds and in investors interest, SEBI had permitted fund houses an additional expense ratio of 30 basis points on new inflows (up to Rs 2 lakh) from retail investors for encouraging mutual funds garnering funds from B-30 cities and energising the distribution network.
