The Indian capital markets witnessed an inflow of USD 3.55 billion from foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) in the current month till June 16.

The Indian capital markets witnessed an inflow of USD 3.55 billion from foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) in the current month till June 16. The high inflow of capital by FPIs is largely attributed to the finalisation of the GST rates and the nearing of GST roll out date, along with the normal monsoon forecasts, even as monsoon arrived in several states in India.
 
Most of the investments coming in through the FPIs were in the debt market, according to market reports. Market experts noted that the debt market attracted investors because of the differential spread between 10-year bond yields in the US and India is still 4.5 to 5%, while stability in the Indian currency also made debt markets more attractive.
             
As per the latest data, FPIs invested Rs 4,022 crore in equities in the June 1-16 period, whereas about Rs 18,821 crore was invested in the debt markets during the same period, aggregating to a total net inflow of Rs. 22,844 crore or USD 3.55 billion.

The markets recorded a net inflow of over Rs 1.33 lakh crore in the previous four months (February-May), while over Rs 3496 crore was invested on an aggregate in the month of January 2017.
