Investing In India

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm looking at investing in India based on some of the following positive criteria:

• There is a strong domestic consumption in the Indian market making this attractive to investors

• Favourable demographics like a younger Indian population make the country highly attractive versus other countries like China

• Lower labour costs in India make the market attractive to businesses and investors

• India’s strengths have some economists rooting for India over China from an investor perspective

• Far lower wage pressures will eventually allow Indian firms to gain market share in global exports

• India has a very strong exports industry, providing the world with support services, technology, automobiles, commodities, pharmaceutical companies, textiles and chemicals.

• India has a new way of paying benefits to the poor and this should give a lift to Indian banks and the wider economy.

• Investors who invested in India 20 years ago would be sitting pretty today, having turned £1,000 into £6,700 (so approx 28.5% per annum on average?!)

• Indian stocks are relatively cheap compared with historic prices, so much so that punchy investors are calling it a buying opportunity and waiting for the bounce.

I'm talking to an asset management company in London at the moment who are making a very compelling case for investing with them.

Does anybody on here have any experience with or particularly strong views either way about this market?

Any advice you can give would be much appreciated.

I suppose you could get in when others are fearful.

Yes, that is certainly the view from the other side I guess!

Regarding "getting in when others are fearful" -isn't that where all the big money is made? ;)

Thanks for your feedback, it certainly offers interesting (and somewhat sobering) food for thought..
