Sebi: FIIs invested Rs 10 lakh cr in FY11
April, 04th 2011

Betting high on Indian market, Foreign investors have purchased stocks and bonds worth Rs 10 lakh crore in the fiscal ending March 31.

Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) have purchased stocks and debt securities worth Rs 9,92,595.15 crore in the fiscal 2010-11, according to the latest available data with Sebi (Securities and Exchange Board of India).

At the same time, FIIs sold shares and bonds worth Rs 84,6157.71 crore during the fiscal-- still leaving behind an investment of over Rs 1.46 lakh crore for the fiscal. In dollar terms, foreign funds invested $32.22 billion.

FII inflows are described as 'hot money' because they can be pulled out anytime.

In the calender year 2010, overseas investors have infused a whopping Rs 1.79 lakh crore or $39.47 billion. FIIs had poured in Rs 83,423 crore in the Indian market in 2009.

Market experts said that it was strong FII inflows that provided the much-needed warmth to the Indian capital markets at times when the global economy continued to reel under the pressure of financial sector crisis.

According to analysts, FIIs have been pumping funds into emerging markets like India because of their strong growth potential.

Besides, rising concerns over the European countries' debt issue, political unrest in Middle East and North Africa, and nuclear disaster in Japan are also driving foreign funds into the Indian market.

Market analysts further said that FII inflows into the country will continue to rise this year as well because Indian market continues to be attractive.

"FIIs are bullish on Indian market as the stock market is on self correction mode and quite attractive at this time. Besides, situation in the rest of the world is not good so they don't have much opportunity,"CNI Research Head Kishore Ostwal said.

He further said, "FII inflows were not disturbed by the 2G scam, financial bribery scandal and inflation concerns. We are bullish that shopping will continue in this year as well."

"Apart from the country's robust economic growth, weakness in overseas markets due to European crisis, Federal Reserve's second quantitative easing plan and Indian government's disinvestment (measures) added to the huge inflows.

2010 has broken all the records of investment by FIIs," SMC Capital's Jagannathan Thunuguntla said.

Analysts believe the government's disinvestment in public sector companies, including Coal India, MOIL and Shipping Corporation of India, provided more investment opportunities to FIIs.

The foreign funds are quite bullish in equity stocks and have poured in Rs 1.1 lakh crore in the 2010-11 and infused Rs 36,317 crore in the debt market.
