An India Revival Stock I'm Bullish On...

India currently ranks 5th among the world's largest economies.

Two of its predecessors, Japan and Germany, have had spectacular tales of economic revival in the past century.

Yet, India's economic prosperity, lost for nearly 300 years, now finds a chance of such revival.

Let me explain.

World War II wiped out the progress Japan had made since 1860s. About 40% of the nation's industrial plants and infrastructure were destroyed. Industrial production was pushed back several decades.

Some critical reforms helped the country swing back into action.

Japan's new factories were equipped with the best modern machines, giving it competitive advantage over the victor states, who now had older factories.

Similarly, Germany had suffered a bout of hyperinflation after the Treaty of Versailles, which destroyed its currency the Deutsche Mark. After World War II, when Germany surrendered, there was nothing left but the rubble of their once prosperous nation.

When the German stock markets finally reopened in 1948, the first trades were 90% below the levels of 1941.

Starting 1950, Germany rose from the ashes and had a sharp economic turn. German stocks compounded at a staggering 24.6% in real terms over the next decade.

Rebuilding public infrastructure played a crucial role in both cases.

Infrastructure can only be built by deploying capital that does not demand excessive rate of return. The lender must wait for cash flows to start accruing. This requires a long wait and endurance.

And this is where a development finance institution (DFI) comes in. DFIs have played a key role in nation-building in developing countries.

The National Bank for Economic and Social Development (BNDES) in Brazil has been a very effective DFI.

The China Development Bank has bankrolled an infrastructure glitz that has been a global talking point for several years.

So, a recent bill passed by the government holds centre stage in India's revival.

The National Bank for Financing Infrastructure and Development (NABFID) Bill allows setting up a DFI under an Act of Parliament.

Now, India had DFIs in the past but the steep interest rates in 1990s failed to keep any of them viable.

[EXCLUSIVE] Webinar Invitation -
"Pandemic Impact. Economic Recovery. Investment Strategy - Insights Revealed!"


Date: May 21st | Time: 6pm | Venue: Your Computer

The Covid-19 crisis in India is said to be one of the biggest crises the country has ever seen.

Amidst this turmoil, investors are also questioning the future of their financial wellbeing.

In this exclusive webinar, Chirag & Sorbh will answer big questions like:

• How will the second wave of Covid-19 impact economic recovery?
• What asset allocation could you consider for uncertain times like this?
• Is the Indian stock market immune to the Covid-19 surge?

And many more...

The single biggest advantage that NABFID will enjoy is that it will borrow at a very low cost of capital. It will get the benefits of being a quasi-sovereign body.

So, combined with the National Infrastructure Pipeline of Rs 102 trillion, this DFI has the potential to revive India's infrastructure dreams like never before.

Of course, there will be many private sector companies too that will participate in this resurgence.

But one company has captured my attention with the kind of contracts it won in the most trying times.

I will share details on this company soon.

I recommend you join me, dear reader, at the India Revival Summit on Thursday, 15 April, to know more.
