Foreign Institutional Investor (FII) Registration at SEBI

FII – It is an investor or investment fund house that is formed or registered in a country outside of the one in which it is currently making investments. Institutional investors include pension funds, hedge funds, insurance companies and mutual funds – asset management companies (AMCs) registered outside India generally form an FII with SEBI to be allowed to invest in India. Again, the term is used most commonly in India to refer to outside companies investing in the financial markets of India. International institutional investors must register with the Securities and Exchange Board of India to participate in the market. One of the major market regulations pertaining to FIIs involves placing limits on FII ownership in Indian companies.

FII means an entity established or incorporated outside India which proposes to make investment in India.

You can register as a FII by applying to SEBI in a specified format. There is no net worth requirement for the registration of FII. Just form an investment company outside India and apply to SEBI for the registration of the same.
