Securities and Exchange Board of India — Best Conduct of Business Regulator in Asia Pacific

5 min read

By The Asian Banker

The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has been instrumental in enhancing the regulatory framework for securities markets in India, focusing on transparency, fairness, and investor protection.

It has been actively working towards instantaneous settlement. In 2021, T+1 settlement was introduced in a phased manner, and fully implemented in January 2023. This move has provided investors with faster access to their funds following trade execution and settlement, enhancing market efficiency and liquidity.

SEBI proactively fosters transparency and accountability in governance, and administration of financial benchmarks in securities markets by introducing a regulatory framework for index providers. The authority also provided flexibility to non-profit organisations in raising funds through the social stock exchange.

Through rigorous enforcement and innovative regulatory practices, SEBI has significantly improved the conduct of business in the country’s financial markets, ensuring fair treatment of consumers, and robust market integrity.

For its achievements, the award for Best Conduct of Business Regulator in Asia Pacific goes to Securities and Exchange Board of India.
