Deutsche Bank launches AccessIndia
September 16, 2019

Deutsche Bank today announced the launch of AccessIndia, an interactive web-based solution for clients, which aims to introduce automated digital market entry to expedite licensing for Foreign Portfolio Investors (FPIs).

The bank describes AccessIndia as a comprehensive solution designed to help foreign investors, such as asset managers and insurance companies, and other such investors who need to set up new investment vehicles in India.

Key intermediaries such as global custodians will also benefit from AccessIndia by gaining process efficiencies in the FPI licensing process, associated with documentation, due diligence and workflow management.

Sriram Krishnan, Head of Securities Services, India, at Deutsche Bank, said: "We are delighted to launch AccessIndia and contribute in not only addressing the pain points of our clients, but also in making digital market entry possible. As a leading custodian in India, Deutsche Bank has fittingly taken the lead in the digitalization of pre-investment compliance for FPIs around licensing and account set-ups."

In addition to providing guidance to a prospective institutional investor with respect to completing all prescribed documentation, AccessIndia also helps in completing the applicable KYC requirements, thus paving the way for an end-to-end single-window entry to the Indian securities market.

During the pilot phase, AccessIndia was used for live FPI applications by a few foreign institutions, which included Swiss private bank Banque Pictet, as well as several other large clients.
