What the experts say

Experts say that going forward, first quarter earnings numbers of companies and the overall budget will decide the direction of FPI inflows. Milind Muchhala, CEO of Julius Baer India, said some funds were probably waiting for the elections to get over. VK Vijayakumar, chief investment strategist at Geojit Financial Services, said the important reason for the FPI inflow into India is external factors… such as rising bond yields in the US and lower valuations in other emerging markets.
