  We need evidence based, not perception based regulations
FIFA, which now represents IFAs from 120 cities across India, is gearing up to engage with the regulator on its proposed consultation paper on the RIA regulations – a paper which will likely have a far reaching impact on business models across MF distribution, including IFAs. Dhruv believes it is time we move away from a perception based regulatory environment to an evidence based one – where rules are made and changed based on clear evidence of the need for change, not merely a perception of a need for change.

Let’s tackle the core of our regulatory woes
Dhruv Mehta believes that trust deficit lies at the core of all our regulatory woes. We live in an environment where the regulator does not trust distributors or fund houses to do what is right for investors. Such an environment is not conducive either for market development or investor protection. We need to tackle the core of the issue – which is trust deficit – rather than individual circulars.
