SEBI should attract new investors to MFs rather than IPOs

Among the plethora of decisions taken at the Securities and Exchange Board of India’s (Sebi) board meeting last week, quite a few were related to improving processes of the primary markets.

As Sebi’s press release states, this will avoid sending misleading signals to retail investors about the extent of oversubscription of an issue.
