Corporate Debt Market

The healthy development of the corporate debt market hinges on a significant level of reforms in regulations governing the primary and secondary markets in corporate debt. The recent initiatives of both Securities Exchange Board of India (SEBI) on the issuance and trading of corporate debt and the RBI's investment guidelines to its regulated entities like banks and primary dealers in this area comprise essentially the first set of reforms. Further initiatives are needed to consciously shape the corporate debt markets, upgrade them and bring them on par with our equity markets in terms of efficiency in trading, price discovery process, transparency, and investor friendliness. In this article an attempt is made to explain the rationale behind the recent measures announced by RBI and SEBI and then draw out the broad contours of the future directions needed to deepen and widen the corporate debt market, both through the stock exchange and banking mechanism.
