India Records Robust Growth In FDI & Portfolio Investment Flows; Corporate Bond Issuance Up 25%
The Ministry of Finance has determined growth figures for foreign institutional investment (FII), foreign portfolio investment (FPI) and corporate bond issuance that indicate India’s economic recovery.
The official statement stated that the trend of FPI, FDI and corporate bond market flow shows that India’s growth story continues to expand, which demonstrates and emphasizes investors’ belief in India’s economic strength and resilience.
Despite being hit by the worldwide pandemic, the frequent and active interventions of the Indian government have boosted investment confidence in the Indian economy.
In the past two months, namely October 2020 and November 2020, FPI inflows, mainly driven by stock inflows, rebounded sharply, leading to the highest FPI inflows in the history of India in the next month. As of November 28, 2020, the FPI inflow was Rs 62,782 crore. Among them, the equity inflow was Rs 60,358 crore, while the net investment in FPI debt and mixed capital was Rs 2,424 crore.
In the field of stocks, since the National Securities Depository Co., Ltd. provided FPI data, the inflow of funds in November 2020 was the highest amount ever invested.
As we all know, FPI flows are less elastic and more sensitive to changing market conditions. Therefore, investment made through the FPI route is measured by net inflows and outflows. In October 2020 and November 2020, FPI mainly witnessed inflows to India.
In November, there was a long-term positive growth trend in the stock market, and there has been no reversal until now. November 12 witnessed the highest inflow of total FPI investment, hitting a single-day high of Rs 1,1,056 crore.
In the second quarter of the 2020-21 fiscal year (July 2020 to September 2020), the total amount of foreign direct investment (FDI) flowing into India was 28.102 billion US dollars, of which FDI equity inflows were 23.441 billion US dollars or rupee. 174793 million.
