with 9 comments

Source Business Standard (India):

  • The number of foreign institutional investors (FIIs) registered with the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) crossed the 1,000 mark. 
  • The total number of FIIs having their offices in India has now increased to 1,030. In the beginning of calendar year 2006, the figure was 813.
  • As many as 217 new FIIs opened their offices in India during the current calendar year. This is the highest number of registrations by FIIs in a year till date. The previous highest was 209 in 2005.
  • The net investments made by the institutions during 2006 was $9,185.90 million against $9,521.80 million in 2005.
  • In 1993, Pictet Umbrella Trust Emerging Markets’ Fund, an institutional investor from Switzerland, was the only FII to enter the Indian market.
  • While in 1994, no new registrations were reported,
  • Between 1995 and 2003, an average of 51 new FIIs opened their shops in the country each year.
  • The break up of FIIs in India is as follows:
    1. US – 368
    2. UK – 167
    3. Luxembourg – 73
    4. Singapore – 51
    5. Australia – 35
    6. Hong Kong – 35
    7. Canada – 32
    8. Ireland – 29
    9. Netherlands – 27
    10. Mauritius – 25
    11. Switzerland – 22
    12. France – 20

With the Indian economy looking strong in the coming years, I am sure the numbers will increase to look better.

  2. FIIs are looking at investing heavily in emerging markets though a little risky. It would be great to see India stand on its own feet without too much dependency or celebrating over FIIs investment.
