HSBC to acquire LTI Investment Management
The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has given the go-ahead for HSBC Asset Management, an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of HSBC Holdings, to fully acquire LTI Investment Management Limited (LTIM), a wholly-owned subsidiary of L&T Finance Holdings Limited (LTFH), and the investment manager of the L&T Mutual Fund. According to the corporation, the clearance is subject to a few requirements and additional approvals.
After the transaction is complete, the LTI Mutual Fund’s mutual fund programmes will either be moved to the HSBC Mutual Fund or combined with specific HSBC mutual fund programmes. In a statement, HSBC said that “the sponsorship, trusteeship, management, and administration of the L&T Mutual Fund shall be adjusted accordingly.”
