How to Set up a Hedge Fund (Trust) with Indian Money in India

I know, Hedge funds or Private Equity funds are not allowed to be based in India. Someone told me they can be run as trust, will you have any idea how is that possible.

Also, can you please tell me which are funds (private not mutual) that are set up with money raised in India.

I would appreciate your answers.

Yes, it is right. Recently SEBI has issued strict rules for setting up hedge fund in India. According to this:

1. #  The rules also say that the fund manager or investment advisor must have a minimum three-year track record in managing funds with an investment strategy that is similar to that of the applicant fund.

2. # "This provision is expected to allow well managed funds to access our market and at the same time, keep our markets insulated from the possible adverse effects of 'trial and errors' by uninitiated rookies," says Sebi in its draft regulations.

3. # Incidentally since hedge funds are not regulated entities, they cannot register as an FII under Sebi's regulations.

4. # Sebi's draft paper has recognised the fact that some hedge funds may be operating in India through sub-accounts.

According to Sebi data, at the end of March, 2004, the total investment by hedge funds in offshore derivative instruments (participatory notes) against Indian equity is Rs 8,050 crore (Rs 80.50 billion) or about eight per cent of the total net equity investments of all FIIs.
