Srei Infra gets Sebi nod for debt fund
Srei Infrastructure on Friday said that it has received the Certificate of Registration from Sebi for its infrastructure debt fund. "We are delighted to receive the approval for mutual fund. Infrastructure Debt Fund (IDF) via the mutual fund route opens up long-term funding options for the infrastructure sector, which is the need of the hour," Srei Infrastructure Finance CMD Hemant Kanoria said in a statement. The company, however, did not mention the expected date of launch of the fund and the amount it is going to raise. "Institutions like pension funds, insurance companies and provident funds, which have long-term liabilities, require investment opportunities with matching cash flows. IDF via the mutual fund route would make a good investment vehicle for these institutions," said Srei Mutual Fund Asset Management CEO Mohit Sachdev.
