The Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) has presented the idea of ‘swing pricing’ to protect investors owing debt mutual funds (MFs) in case of market dislocation of large redemptions.
In a roundabout gave on Wednesday, the regulator said at first the system will be made applicable only during net outflows. This framework will be applicable with effect from March 1, 2022.

Swing pricing allows a fund house to change the NAV of a scheme on occasion when there are large outflows so that there is almost no erosion in value and the redeeming investors don’t get an unfair benefit.
“The system will be a crossbreed structure with a fractional swing during ordinary occasions and an obligatory going full speed ahead during market separation times for high-risk open-ended debt schemes”, the round said.
