The investment banking industry is responsible for raising capital for businesses. In 2021, investment banks will help their clients in identifying revenue-generating opportunities. The investment banking operations industry must perform per some of the regulatory norms. Regulations for the investment banking operations industry are decided by the central/state government. If an investment bank fails to comply with the regulations, it may go through legal hassles. Besides finance professionals, investment banks also need expert compliance officers for following the regulations. There are investment banking courses online that can help you in learning regulatory compliance. Before you search investment banking courses online, you should know about these five regulatory changes.

 

  • Lending limits

 

The exposure limit for investment banks is decided by the central government. The exposure limit defines the amount of loans banks can give to borrowers based on their total funds. The exposure limit is often revised by the central government and investment banks must follow it. The current exposure limit for banks in India is 15% for a single borrower. For a group of borrowers, the exposure limit for banks in India goes up to 25%. The exposure limit can be increased by 5% for financing infrastructure projects. Investment banks often identify capital ventures and invest themselves. While doing so, they should not lend more than the exposure limit to avoid legal hassles.

 

  • Cash Reserve Ratio (CRR)

 

Financial institutions in India must keep a certain amount of cash with RBI (Reserve Bank of India) to meet payment obligations. The CRR is decided by the RBI and changes all the time. Investment banks must keep an eye on the current CRR to avoid any legal hassles with RBI. The current CRR for financial institutions in India is 3%. It means that if the deposit of a financial institution increases by INR 100, then INR 3 will have to be deposited to the RBI.

 

  • Operation norms

 

Once an investment bank has been incorporated, it must conduct operations according to the regulatory norms. According to the norms, an investment bank must list its shares within three years of its incorporation. The regulatory structure also defines the percentage of foreign shareholding. As for now, the foreign shareholding is restricted to 49% in India (maximum). Investment banks can increase foreign shareholding further but only after contacting RBI. The latest regulations also state that financial institutions must open 25% of their branches in rural areas where banking facilities are limited.

 

  • RBI

 

RBI will only set the banking regulations in India for all investment banks. The RBI Act launched in 1934 has given this power to the RBI for deciding the banking regulations. All investment banks that are incorporated under the ‘Companies Act’ will have to follow the RBI regulations. Often, RBI reviews the regulatory structure and makes changes. Compliance officers must keep an eye on the latest announcements from RBI.

 

  • Investment Advisors Act

 

The Investment Advisors Act brought a paradigm shift in the investment banking sector. Before this act, investment banks misinformed investors to curb the competition. In 1940, the Investment Advisors Act was created in which all investment banks had to register themselves. The fees collected by investment advisors are also regulated by this act. An investment banking certification can help learn more about the regulatory structure.
