Earlier this year in February, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) had advised mutual funds investing in overseas securities to stop further investments in foreign stocks to avoid breach of industry-wide overseas limits.

The regulator has specified an overall industry level limit of $7 billion for mutual funds to invest in overseas securities and funds and a separate limit of $1 billion for invest in overseas ETFs.

Further, the Association of Mutual Funds in India (Amfi) in June notified that mutual fund schemes may resume subscriptions and make investments in overseas funds /securities up to the headroom available without breaching the overseas investment limits as on 1 February 2022.

The fund house in recent past had opened some of its overseas schemes for large investors and market makers due to availability in headroom for investments.

Last month, the fund house had opened up the creation of its two overseas exchange-traded funds (ETFs)--Motilal Oswal Nasdaq 100 ETF and Motilal Oswal Nasdaq Q 50 ETF--directly with the fund for large investors.

Large investors deal in ‘creation unit size’ other than authorized participants and market makers who create or redeemed directly with the fund or AMC.
