Fdi vs Fii

...FDI vs FII Both FDI and FII are related to investment in a foreign country. FDI or Foreign Direct Investment is an investment that a parent company makes in a foreign country. On the contrary, FII or Foreign Institutional Investor is an investment made by an investor in the markets of a foreign nation. In FII, the companies only need to get registered in the stock exchange to make investments. But FDI is quite different from it as they invest in a foreign nation. The Foreign Institutional Investor is also known as hot money as the investors have the liberty to sell it and take it back. But in Foreign Direct Investment, this is not possible. In simple words, FII can enter the stock market easily and also withdraw from it easily. But FDI cannot enter and exit that easily. This difference is what makes nations to choose FDI’s more than then FIIs. FDI is more preferred to the FII as they are considered to be the most beneficial kind of foreign investment for the whole economy. Foreign Direct Investment only targets a specific enterprise. It aims to increase the enterprises capacity or productivity or change its management control. In an FDI, the capital inflow is translated into additional production. The FII investment flows only into the secondary market. It helps in increasing capital availability in general rather than enhancing the capital of a specific enterprise. The Foreign Direct Investment is considered to be more stable than Foreign Institutional Investor. FDI not......

China Fdi

... Perspectives on China's Outward Foreign Direct Investment Randall Morck Bernard Yeung Minyuan Zhao Abstract Recent economic data reveal that, at the infant stage, China’s outward foreign direct investment (FDI) is biased towards tax haven countries and South East Asian countries and are mostly conducted by State controlled enterprises with government sanctioned monopoly status. Further examination of China’s savings rate, corporate ownership structures, and bank dominated capital allocation suggests that, although a surge in China’s outward FDI might be economically sensible, the most active players have incentives to conduct excessive outward FDI while capital constraints limit players that most likely have value-creating FDI opportunities. We then discuss plausible firm-level justifications for China’s outward FDI flow, its importance, and promising avenues for further research. I. Introduction Barely thirty years ago, most would consider China a poor agricultural economy. In 2008 China is hosting the Olympics to signal its emergence as a major economic power. This phenomenal development appropriately draws international business scholars’ attention. One especially curious characteristic of China’s development path is a recent surge in its outward foreign direct investment (FDI). Successful and not-so-successful foreign acquisitions by companies like Haier, Lenovo, TCL and CNOOC (China National Offshore Oil Corporation) grab headlines. Much discussion is of the......

Government also increased the FDI limit in single-brand retail to 100% from 51% Government says it will benefit India. Traders fear the move. Opposition parties oppose the move as they know they will benefit if they support the traders. No one is touching the real issues and accepting the truth that today or tomorrow FDI, big global corporations will enter into India directly or indirectly. Today world is becoming a global village. Foreign Investment in India is governed by the FDI policy announced by the Government of India and the provision of the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) 1999. The foreign investors are free to invest in India, except few sectors/activities, where prior approval from the RBI or Foreign Investment Promotion Board (‘FIPB’) is required. In franchising and commission agents’ services, FDI (unless otherwise prohibited) is allowed with the approval of the Reserve Bank of India under the Foreign Exchange Management Act.

Volume 3, Issue 3 (April 2013) ISSN: 2249-7382 ANALYSIS OF FDI IN INSURANCE SECTOR IN INDIA Yogita Sharma* ABSTRACT There is hardly a facet of the Indian psyche that the concept of ‘foreign’ has not permeated. This term, connoting modernization, international brands and acquisitions by MNCs in popular imagination, has acquired renewed significance after the reforms initiated by the Indian Government in 1991. Generally speaking FDI refers to capital inflows from abroad that invest in the production capacity of the economy and are “usually preferred over other forms of external finance because they are non-debt creating, non-volatile and their returns depend on the performance of the projects financed by the investors. FDI also facilitates international trade and transfer of knowledge, skills and technology. “Foreign direct investment is of growing importance to global economic growth. This Paper mainly focus on the Foreign Direct Investment in the Insurance sector and its significance in insurance sector in India .

...FDI IN INDIA: COUNTRY-WISE AND SECTORAL ANALYSIS Abstract: Foreign investment is a subject of topical interest. Countries of the world, particularly developing economies, are vying with each other to attract foreign capital to boost their domestic rates of investment and also to acquire new technology and managerial skills. Intense competition is taking place among the fund starved less developed countries to lure foreign investors by offering repatriation facilities, tax concession and other incentives. However. Foreign Investment is not an unmixed blessing. Governments in developing countries have to be very heedful while deciding the magnitude, pattern and conditions of private foreign investment. The wave of liberalization and globalization sweeping across the world has opened many national markets for international business. It is stated that FDI has to play a novel role in the world economy. The role of FDI has now transformed from a tool to solve the financial crises to a modernizing force. In past liberalization regime India has experienced tremendous growth in FDI inflows from an average of US $5-6 billion during previous five years; it has crossed the level of US $30 billion. But it still receives far less FDI flows than China and the USA or much smaller economies in Asia like Hongkong and Singapore in terms of GDP or Gross Fixed Investment. IT is not surprising, As India’s growth strategies have been reliant primarily on domestic enterprises; Mindset has......

...The attraction and retention of foreign direct investment (FDI) is a complex and multifaceted activity for a number of different stakeholders” FDIs are distinct in Foreign Investments in that the entities making the investment wield a substantial degree of governance over the businesses invested in. Economies with few trade restrictions that have exports and imports that make up a large sector of the host nation’s GDP are considered to be ideal sites for FDIs. It is the degree of openness of that economy that regulates a government's choice to pursue the economic policy of FDIs. In the movie The Grand Seduction, a small fishing village called St. Marie-La-Mauderne, of Newfoundland has been dying an economic death. Their GDP has flat-lined which makes them an idyllic candidate for an FDI. The town’s willingness to do whatever it takes in terms of lifting restrictions is the impetus for the movie’s plot. The aspiration to attract the appropriate FDI often leads nations to participate in a global competition. This competition has created investment promotion agencies and endorsed policies that produce incentives for FDIs. These incentives traditionally are financial in nature. They are presented as: tax concessions in the form of a reduced corporate income tax rate (as in the movie where they received a tax exemption for life), enhanced depreciation allowances, and exemption from import taxes and refunds of duties on exports. These entail: direct contributions to the......
