Participatory Notes (P-Notes)

Investments through participatory notes (p-notes) in Indian markets declined in January due to cautious foreign investor behaviour amid high valuations.

Brokers and foreign institutional investors (FIIs) must register with the Securities and Exchange Board of India.

Participatory notes allow non-registered investors to invest in the Indian market.

Participatory notes, referred to as P-notes or PNs, are derivative instruments with Indian shares as the underlying assets.

Participatory notes are popular investments due to the investor remaining anonymous.
