The capital markets regulator Securities Exchange Board of India (Sebi) has released a draft circular which carries the reporting format for investment advisors. The circular states that the investment advisors (IAs) are required to furnish to Sebi, information and reports as may be specified from time to time.

The Sebi circular stipulates that the investment advisors must share details of their social media handles such as Facebook, X (formerly Twitter), Linkedin and others. The circular also mentions that the details of all such platforms must be shared.
