Doctor or chemist. Sebi settles the issue with a client level segregation approach.

The Securities and Exchange Board of India has become the first financial regulator to settle the debate regarding the classification of advisors and agents when it comes to financial instruments. Personal finance expert Monika Halan explains Sebi’s solution, comparing advisors to doctors, and agents to chemists.

Monika Halan is consulting editor, Mint, and author of the book ‘Let’s Talk Money’.
