Overseas investors have infused more than 10,000 crore rupees in the domestic capital markets this month so far, with debt segment accounting for the lion’s share. Experts said that equity investments have slowed down on account of rising geopolitical tensions in West Asia as well as US-India trade conflict.
As per the latest depositories data, foreign portfolio investors, FPIs, pumped in around 552 crore rupees into equities and around 9,761 crore into the debt market during Jun 3 to 21, taking the cumulative net investment to 10,313 crore rupees. FPIs have been net buyers for the previous four consecutive months.
They invested around 9,031 crore rupees in May, 16,093 crore rupees in April, 45,981 crore rupees in March and 11,182 crore rupees in February into the Indian capital markets-both equity and debt.
