The Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) is considering offering incentives to asset management companies (AMCs) that increase their reach beyond the top cities. The move is aimed at increasing the spread and fund flows from smaller cities, where penetration is currently very low. If a fund house is able to spread its reach and get a new set of investors into their equity schemes from Tier-II and Tier-III cities, the market regulator might allow it to charge an expense ratio of up to 50 basis points over-and-above the permitted limit, said people familiar with the development. Following a meeting with the mutual fund advisory committee earlier this week, the regulator is also likely to increase the maximum expense that a fund can charge by 25 basis points to 2.75 per cent. An announcement in this regard is likely in the next few weeks from Sebi. Expense ratio is the percentage of an investor's corpus that an AMC deducts annually to meet its various expenses.
