Market regulator Sebi
on Thursday warned investment advisers that deal in digital gold
and the other unregulated financial products.
“It has come to the notice of Sebi that some registered investment advisers are engaged in unregulated activity by providing a platform for dealing in unregulated products including digital gold… Investment Advisers are, hereby, advised to refrain from undertaking such unregulated activities,” the market watchdog said in a release.
Earlier, stock exchanges had directed stock brokers to discontinue the sale of digital gold on their platforms by September 10.
