Listing of Scheme of Alternate Investment Fund on BSE

Defined as:

Regulation 2(1) (b) of the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Alternative Investment Funds) Regulations, 2012 defines alternative investment funds (AIFs) in India. Any privately pooled investment money (whether from Indian or foreign sources) in the form of a trust, a corporation, a body corporate, or a Limited Liability Partnership is referred to as a private pooled investment fund (LLP). As a result, in India, AIFs are private funds that are not subject to the authority of any regulatory agency.

Alternative Investment Funds are divided into several categories (AIFs)

Alternative Investment Funds must register in one of three categories, according to the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Alternative Investment Funds) Regulations of 2012.

Category I: Invests mostly in start-ups, small businesses, and any other industry that the government deems economically and socially viable.

Category II: Alternative Investment Funds (AIFs) such as private equity and debt funds that receive no special incentives or concessions from the government or any other regulator fall under this category.

Category III: Alternative Investment Funds, such as hedge funds or funds that trade with the goal of making short-term profits, or other open-ended funds for which the government or any other regulator provides no special incentives or concessions.

Alternative Investment Funds / Schemes: Tenure and Listing

The duration of AIF schemes established under Category I and II will be set at the time of application and shall be for a minimum of three years.

Alternative Investment Funds in Category III might be opening-ended or closed-ended.

The near-ended Alternative Investment Fund's term can be extended for up to two years with the agreement of two-thirds of the unit holders by value of their investment in the Alternative Investment Fund. In the absence of an unitholder agreement, the Alternative Investment Fund will entirely liquidate within one year of the fund's initial or extended-term expiring.

A minimum trading lot of one crore rupees is required for close-ended Alternative Investment Fund units to be listed on the stock market. Only when the fund or plan has closed will such a listing be authorized. Listed on stock exchanges, on the other hand, is entirely optional.
