I have been attached with FinEdge through my Financial advisor Ms Deepika for last 7 years and my experience has been fantastic to say the least. While for the first 6 yrs I had been in India and experienced prompt responses all the time but last one year that I have been working from Bangkok has been even better. Long distance never seemed any barrier at all. Infact I was more than happy with speed of the responses and quality of the conversations. My special word for my Financial Advisor Ms Deepika. She has been extremely professional and has fine sense of financial acumen to make all my investments choices very good. Way to go for both Deepika and FinEdge

Should NRIs Invest in Indian Equity

For NRIs, investing in equity can be a viable option due to its potential for higher returns compared to other asset classes. Equities can offer significant capital appreciation over the long term, which is crucial for meeting goals such as retirement, children’s education or wealth creation.  However, it is critical to evaluate risk appetite, investment horizon and financial objectives before diving into the equity market. Additionally, seeking professional advice can help in constructing a well diversified portfolio that balances risk and return effectively.  

NRIs can take advantage of these opportunities by investing in mutual funds based on their specific needs and financial objectives. By incorporating equity Mutual funds into their investment portfolio, NRIs can potentially achieve substantial wealth creation, provided they follow a disciplined and informed investment approach.

DiA simplifies the process of investing by incorporating an investing process that has the investor’s financial goals as the anchor. With financial goals being primary, the rest of the strategy follows seamlessly. As an assisted platform, Dreams into Action (DiA) offers tailored investment solutions designed to meet the unique needs of NRIs. Some features of the DiA investment platform that make it unique are following an investment process that is collaborative, immersive and highly customised to investor needs.

 The platform prioritises client interest and provides easy access to expertise in investment management, ensuring that investments are aligned with respective financial goals. DiA also simplifies the transaction process, making it user friendly and compliant with regulatory standards, which is essential for NRIs looking to invest in Indian markets. 

One of the best investment options for NRIs, following the DiA investment process, is mutual funds. Mutual funds offer diversification, professional management, and the potential for long term returns, making them an informed choice for NRIs aiming to grow their wealth in a structured and efficient manner.

India retains to be a bright spot in the world economy and as per a Jefferies report, is poised to become the 3rd largest economy in the next 5 years overtaking Germany and Japan. Jefferies forecasts India’s GDP to reach $5 trillion within the next four years, aiming for nearly $10 trillion by 2030. This expansion in economic terms is supported by a projected annual GDP growth rate of 7% over the next five years, retaining the fastest growing major economy tag in the world. The investment firm also predicts significant growth in the Indian equity markets over the next five to seven years. 

Moreover, while India’s demographics are favourable, there is continuous reform taking place that is shaping up the economy of the country. Projection on major investments in infrastructure, Automotive, Space technology, renewables etc makes India a very attractive investment destination in the years to come. These factors would largely contribute to a long-term wealth creation opportunity for domestic or NRI investors who plan to invest in Indian Equity. 

It is important to note that wealth creation involves following an investment process that considers one’s goals, aspirations, risk tolerance and investing beliefs.
