Fastest Growing AMC “Quant” is facing SEBI Inquiry,
What an investor should do now?

Another Front Running inquiry from SEBI, this time it is from Quant Mutual Fund.

Quant is one of the fastest growing Asset Management Company with 90,000 Crore of AUM. SEBI has conducted raids at Mumbai Head Quarters and suspected beneficial ownership in Hyderabad on the grounds of Front Running activity.

Front running (in the current context) is when a fund manager and their associates buy shares in their personal account(s) before a fund purchases the shares. Since the fund would place a large order, the price will move up. So, the employees would get an immediate gain that can be sold off. Naturally, this is illegal and unethical and is banned by SEBI.

We advise against any knee-jerk reactions, such as redemptions, until there is more clarity from the regulator or the mutual fund company.

It's important to note that, unlike individual stocks that may experience significant drops in response to such news, mutual fund investors are generally not impacted in the same way since mutual funds are essentially pass-through vehicles. The current investigation appears to pertain to the fund management process, not the stock portfolio of the funds being managed by the Asset Management Company (AMC).
