The NSE IFSC will be the first in the world to allow Indian retail investors to trade stocks in the United States. “Unsponsored depository receipts will be used to make the offering.”

The NSE International Exchange (NSE IFSC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the National Stock Exchange (NSE), said on August 9 that it will shortly begin trading in select US companies.

The NSE IFSC platform would be used to enable the trading, according to a press release “Unsponsored depository receipts will be used to make the offering. Under the Regulatory Sandbox, IFSCA has made this possible.”

The entire trading, clearing, settlement, and holding of US stocks will be governed by the IFSC authority’s regulatory system.

“This effort is a first of its type at IFSC, where Indian retail investors will be allowed to transact on the NSE IFSC platform within the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) Liberalized Remittance Scheme (LRS) limits,” NSE IFSC stated.

The RBI’s LRS framework, for example, allows residents to remit up to $250,000 per fiscal year for any allowed current or capital account transaction.

“The business model offered by NSE IFSC will not only provide additional investment opportunities to Indian investors but will also make the entire investing procedure simple and inexpensive,” the stock exchange noted.
