Mumbai, April 8, 2016: Federal Bank, the Indian Banking major in the private sector, entered into a strategic partnership with Phillip Capital (India) Pvt. Ltd., a subsidiary of the Singapore headquartered Phillip Capital group, for managing NRI Portfolio Investment Scheme (PIS). The tie-up was announced at a customer meet held at Hotel Conrad Centennial, Singapore on 7th of April 2016. On the occasion, Mr. Shyam Srinivasan, MD & CEO, Federal Bank, and Mr. Lim Hua Min, Chairman of Phillip Capital Group, Singapore exchanged the MoU announcing the tie-up.
PIS is a route designated by the Reserve Bank of India for Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) and Persons of Indian Origin (PIOs) to invest in Indian Equity Markets for the purchase of shares and convertible debentures listed on registered stock exchanges in India. Phillip Capital is an integrated financial house with a global presence that offers a full range of quality and innovative services to retail, corporate and institutional customers.
