The Phenomenal Rise of the Retail Indian Investor
Apr 30, 2018

The game of investing is getting intensely competitive.

Domestic investors are making a beeline to invest in Indian equities like never before.

As you can see, the chart shows tepid investor participation in the Indian stock markets until FY14. But starting from the financial year 2014-15 (FY15), there's a paradigm shift in investments by mutual funds.

Some of the key drivers for this shift has been the relatively poor performance of other asset classes such as gold and real estate. The downcycle in interest rates made fixed deposits unattractive.

Then, the year 2017-18 (FY18) saw another massive leap in net investments by mutual funds. This was, to quite an extent, triggered by the Narendra Modi government's demonetisation drive and then further propelled by the bull rally in the stock markets.

With stocks gaining acceptance among Indian savers, this trend is likely to sustain.
