Indian Association of Alternative Investment Funds (IAAIF) is supporting the Conference on Institutional Participation in Commodity Derivative Markets organised by Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI) on September 26th, at The St. Regis, Mumbai.
Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has recently permitted Category III Alternative Investment Funds (AIFs) to participate in the commodity derivatives market, the first category of financial institutions to participate in this market. IAAIF has been proactively engaged with SEBI by way of representations and meetings for allowing Category III AIFs to participate in commodities segment. It is expected that other categories of financial institutions would, similarly, be allowed over time.
Against this backdrop, FICCI, in partnership with MCX Investor Protection Fund and Thomson Reuters is organizing this day-long Conference to delve on the benefits of institutional participation in Commodity Derivatives market as well as the experience in this segment of other Regulators such as U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission.
Participants at the Conference would be fund managers from global financial institutions like mutual funds and ETFs active in commodity-based trading and other institutions who would be participating for the first time in India’s commodity markets.
