The gradual increase in the amount of net inflows indicates that investors are slowly dropping their cautious stance and gaining higher conviction on the Indian markets, said Himanshu Srivastava, associate director - manager research, Morningstar India.
As per depositories data, Rs 5,001 crore was invested in equities and Rs 2,244 crore in the debt segment by overseas investors between August 2-20. This took the total net investment to Rs 7,245 crore.
Regarding other emerging markets, Shrikant Chouhan, executive vice president, equity technical research at Kotak Securities, noted that flows in South Korea, Taiwan and Thailand continue to be negative to the tune of $5,269 million, $855 million and $341 million, respectively.
As per Srivastava, the Indian equity markets offer an attractive investment proposition from the long-term perspective. With improving macroeconomic environment and positive outlook, FPIs are focusing their attention on Indian equities.
However, he added that short-term risks continue to persist.
Additionally, lower chances of further rate cuts on the back of global inflation continue to add to their worries.
