DelhiDesk Three investors based in Moscow have been granted Foreign Portfolio Investor (FPI) licenses by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI). The investors include Alfa Capital Management Company, registered in both categories 1 and 2, and individual investor Vsevolod Rozanov, who is registered in category 1. The licenses are valid for three years until early 2026. Experts suggest that Russian investors are exploring Indian markets due to sanctions imposed on Russia by the US and the European Union following its invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.
