What Is FDI?
 Foreign direct investment (FDI) occurs when a firm invests
directly in new facilities to produce and/or market in a foreign
 the firm becomes a multinational enterprise

 The flow of FDI refers to the amount of FDI undertaken over a

given time period
 Outflows of FDI are the flows of FDI out of a country
 Inflows of FDI are the flows of FDI into a country

 The stock of FDI refers to the total accumulated value of

foreign-owned assets at a given time

 FDI can be in the form of

 Greenfield investments - the establishment of a wholly

new operation in a foreign country
 acquisitions or mergers with existing firms in the foreign

 Brown field Investments - When a company or

government entity purchases or leases existing production
facilities to launch a new production activity. This is one
strategy used in foreign-direct investment.

How Does FDI Benefit
The Host Country?
 There are main benefits of inward FDI for a host country
1. Resource transfer effects - FDI brings capital, technology,
and management resources
2. Employment effects - FDI can bring jobs
3. Balance of payments effects - FDI can help a country to
achieve a current account surplus
4. Effects on competition and economic growth - greenfield
investments increase the level of competition in a market,
driving down prices and improving the welfare of
 can lead to increased productivity growth, product and process
innovation, and greater economic growth

 Inflows of foreign stable capital into the country
 Helps in the transition to privatization (when state
owned firms are sold to foreign investors)
 Improves the countries’infrastructures
 Brings foreign executives into the country with
sufficient knowledge of macroeconomic global and
local situations

What Are The Costs Of
FDI To The Host Country?
 Inward FDI has three main costs:
1. Adverse effects of FDI on competition within the host nation
 subsidiaries of foreign MNEs may have greater economic power than
indigenous competitors because they may be part of a larger
international organization
2. Adverse effects on the balance of payments
 when a foreign subsidiary imports a substantial number of its inputs
from abroad, there is a debit on the current account of the host
country’s balance of payments
3. Perceived loss of national sovereignty and autonomy
 decisions that affect the host country will be made by a foreign
parent that has no real commitment to the host country, and over
which the host country’s government has no real control

How Does Government
Influence FDI?
 Governments can encourage outward FDI
 government-backed insurance programs to cover major types of foreign
investment risk
 Governments can restrict outward FDI
 limit capital outflows, manipulate tax rules, or outright prohibit FDI
 Governments can encourage inward FDI
 offer incentives to foreign firms to invest in their countries
 gain from the resource-transfer and employment effects of FDI, and capture
FDI away from other potential host countries
 Governments can restrict inward FDI
 use ownership restraints and performance requirements

How Do International
Institutions Influence FDI?
 Until the 1990s, there was no consistent involvement by
multinational institutions in the governing of FDI
 Today, the World Trade Organization is changing this by
trying to establish a universal set of rules designed to
promote the liberalization of FDI

An Overview of India-FDI

destination for FDI, which further rose to secondmost attractive
destination for FDI in 2012, as ranked by A.T. Kearney FDI
Confidence Index.
 As a directinvestment in to production or business in India, by
purchasing the stocks or buying a company or expanding
the business

What is FPI

Foreign Porfolio Investment(FPI):

1. FPI denotes all those investors or investment companies that are not located within
the territory of the country in which they are investing.
2. In economics foreign portfolio investment is the entry of funds into a country
where foreigners make purchases in the country’s stock and bond markets,
sometimes for speculation
3. Foreign Portfolio Investment (FPI): passive holdings of securities and other
financial assets, which do NOT entail active management or control of the
securities's issuer.
4. FPI is positively influenced by high rates of return and reduction of risk through
geographic diversification. The return on FPI is normally in the form of interest
payments or non-voting dividends.
5. “SEBI’s definition of FPIs presently includes foreign pension funds, mutual funds,
charitable/endowment/university funds etc. as well as asset management companies
and other money managers operating on their behalf.”

Advantage of FPI
 Enhanced flows of equitycapital
 FIIs have a greater appetite for equity than debt.. It improve capital
 Managing uncertainty and controllingrisks.
 FPI inflows help in financial innovation and developmentof hedging
 Improving capital markets.
 FPIs as professional bodies of asset managers and financial analysts
enhance competition and efficiencyof financial markets.
 Equity market development aids economic development.
 FPIs can help in the process of economic development.
 Improved corporategovernance.
 FPIs constitute professional bodies, improve corporate governance.
Disadvantages of FPI
 Problems of Inflation
 Hot Money
 Political Risk represented by the possibility of change in the political
environment resulting in change in investment norms andrepatriation
 Emerging markets which are the beneficiaries of most FPI traditionally suffer
from low retail participation which results in inadequate liquidity which results
in price volatility.
 Due to the unpredictable nature of such funds there is a tendency to shift from
one market to another at short intervals. Volatility arising out of FPI inflows and
outflowshas adverse effects on the host country economy.
 Emerging economics tend to have depreciation prone currencies. This exposes
the foreign investor to exchange rate risk on both principal and returns.

FII Investments & Market Reaction
While strong inflow of funds from foreign
institutional investors (FIIs) has been a

reason to cheer , it could turn into a

nightmare and if the global investors
make a sudden exit can send the

bourses crashing.
