On the occasion of Sebi Foundation Day, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) unveiled its new logo at a ceremony held in Mumbai. The new logo represents SEBI’s commitment to facilitating economic growth through capital formation, while also incorporating the power of technology and data into policy-making.

Significance of the new SEBI logo
Madhabi Puri Buch, the Chairperson of SEBI, explained that the new logo is intended to represent SEBI’s combination of traditional values and its modern, technology-driven approach to its three areas of focus in the securities market: market development, market regulation, and investor protection.
SEBI’s history is closely tied to significant events in India’s financial markets, such as the Harshad Mehta scam in 1992, which led to the establishment of the SEBI Act. Over time, SEBI has evolved to become more focused on protecting investors and promoting market growth, as reflected in its recent rebranding efforts.
