Financial Influencers On Instagram, Youtube Will Be Monitored & Governed By Govt

We recently reported that SEBI, the Securities and Exchange Board of India, is developing regulations to regulate the expanding number of financial influencers who offer advise on social media.

Numerous Indian online influencers have been known to provide financial and investment guidance despite not being qualified to do so. Such “influencers” have a negative impact, particularly in the case of recent startup listings.

Additionally, there have been cases where influencers were paid by businesses to boost their stock prices through advice. The main draw for such individuals is their capacity to translate complicated financial jargon into understandable terms.

However, SEBI mandated that financial advisors have to register themselves which lends credibility.

At present, there are about 1,300 registered investment advisors in India. The rise of financial influencers has been a challenge for SEBI. In FY22, there have been 415 instances of violations by influencers and celebrities in finance- and cryptocurrency-related content.
