Hrishikesh Parandekar, chief executive officer & group head (broking, wealth management and asset management), Karvy Wealth, said that thanks to the new norms for (AIF) issued by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) earlier this year, the market would see many hedge funds launched.

The AIF guidelines will regulate all private equity players, venture funds, real estate funds and hedge funds.

They can invest in any asset class - stocks, bonds, commodities, real estate, private partnerships — or exotic debt products like packaged sub-prime mortgages. They can run highly concentrated portfolios. Till now, hedge funds have been largely unregulated.

Parandekar said the fund will constitute both equity and currency. It will follow the quantitative algorithm method of investing, he said. Karvy is still in the early stages of getting approvals for it.
