Let’s explore how recent Portfolio Management Services (PMS) regulations are a game-changer for Non-Resident Indian (NRI) and High Net-Worth Individual (HNI) investors.


Understanding the Landscape

NRI and HNI investors face unique challenges and opportunities when it comes to managing their wealth. With diverse investment goals, risk profiles, and regulatory considerations, finding the right investment solution can be daunting. Enter Portfolio Management Services (PMS) – a tailored investment solution designed to meet the specific needs and objectives of NRI/HNI investors.

Redefining PMS

Traditionally, PMS has been perceived as a service reserved for institutional investors or ultra-high net worth individuals. However, we believe that PMS offers tremendous value and potential for NRI/HNI investors seeking personalized, professional investment management.

Why Choose PMS?

  1. Tailored Investment Strategies: PMS providers offer customized investment strategies tailored to your unique financial goals, risk tolerance, and time horizon. Whether you’re looking for capital appreciation, income generation, or wealth preservation, PMS can be customized to meet your needs.

  2. Professional Expertise: PMS providers are staffed with experienced portfolio managers and investment professionals who have a deep understanding of global markets and investment trends. By entrusting your wealth to seasoned professionals, you gain access to expertise and insights that can enhance your investment outcomes.

  3. Diversification and Risk Management: PMS portfolios are diversified across asset classes, sectors, and geographies to mitigate risk and enhance returns. With a focus on risk management and asset allocation, PMS helps NRI/HNI investors navigate market volatility and achieve long-term financial objectives.

  4. Transparency and Accountability: PMS providers operate with a high level of transparency and accountability, providing regular updates and performance reports to investors. With full visibility into portfolio holdings and performance metrics, you can make informed decisions and track the progress of your investments.

  5. Regulatory Compliance: PMS providers adhere to strict regulatory guidelines and compliance standards, ensuring that your investments are managed in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. As an NRI investor, partnering with a reputable PMS provider gives you confidence and peace of mind.

  6. Fee calculation tool: To help you understand the potential costs involved in Portfolio Management Services (PMS), SEBI now requires all PMS providers to offer a fee calculation tool. This tool will show you different fee options and how they might change over several years, making it easier to compare different plans and choose the one that best suits your needs. This rule applies to all new clients starting from October 1st, 2024, and you will receive a link to access this tool before starting your PMS investment.

Complete Digital Onboarding

SEBI has eliminated the need for handwritten notes and wet signatures during the onboarding process. This means you can now sign up for PMS entirely online, making the journey smoother and more convenient.

This change takes effect on October 1st, 2024. While most PMS houses already offered digital onboarding options, the wet signature requirement remained a hurdle. With this update, the entire process becomes streamlined and paperless.

Most Important Terms and Conditions (MITC)

SEBI is introducing a new requirement for Portfolio Management Services (PMS). All PMS providers must now provide their clients with a clear and concise “MITC” document. This document will highlight the most important terms and conditions of your PMS agreement, making it easier for you to understand your rights and obligations.

This applies to both new clients starting from October 1st, 2024, and existing clients who will be informed about the MITC via email or another suitable method by January 1st, 2025. The Association of Portfolio Managers in India (APMI) will define a standard format for this document to ensure consistency and clarity across all PMS providers.
