Major contribution of investment in Adani Group
The main contributor to the March investment was capital infused by US-based GQG Partners into Adani group companies. However, if GQG’s investment in the Adani group is taken out, the March figure will also turn negative. Apart from this, in the first two months of this year, FPI had withdrawn more than Rs 34,000 crore.

Why is investment coming?
Himanshu Srivastava, Associate Director-Manager, Research Department, Morningstar India, said that the reason for the fresh buying of FPIs is the strong outlook of the Indian economy, fair valuation of stocks and better quarterly results. Apart from equities, FPIs also infused Rs 3,276 crore into the debt or bond market in May. In this way, till now in 2023, FPIs have put Rs 35,748 crore in the Indian stock markets and Rs 7,471 crore in the bond market.
