Our comments:
The reporting requirement prescribed for FMEs under the IFMR are comprehensive in terms of the quantitative date to be shared by the FMEs for each of their activities fund management, portfolio management and family office activities such as the details of the schemes launched, investor composition under each scheme, leverage details and portfolio details under each scheme. The compliance report requires the compliance officer as well as the principal to confirm that the activities of the FME are being conducted as per various regulations under IFMR. In all, it appears that the IFSCA has drawn from the from the experience of SEBI over the years and have introduced comprehensive reporting requirements for FMEs upfront which should help IFSCA in collecting data for statistics, industry trends, issues faced by the industry which could be useful in monitoring and reforming the IFMR in future.
