Domestic savings and Investments

Domestic savings and investments


Process of setting aside a portion of current income for future use, or the resources accumulated in this way over a given period of time. Savings may take the form of bank deposits and cash holdings or securities.
Savings form the backbone for investments viz., higher savings lead to higher investments and vice versa in accordance with the general perception about the macroeconomic balance in national accounts. An economy can have different forms of savings of which household financial savings generally constitute the largest share in aggregate domestic savings. Other forms of savings comprise physical savings by households, savings by the private corporate sector and the public sector and foreign savings.

Domestic savings
Gross domestic savings are calculated as GDP less final consumption expenditure

(total consumption).

Gross Domestic Saving (GDS) of the Indian economy constitutes savings of public,

private corporate and household sectors.

The estimates of savings both at overall and sectoral levels are finalized and

disseminated by Central Statistical Organization (CSO).

At the sectoral level, savings estimates for the public sector are prepared by CSO,

while Reserve Bank of India (RBI) prepares savings estimates for the private corporate sector on the basis of its company finance studies.

The savings of the household sector are estimated separately under financial assets

and physical assets. RBI takes the responsibility of estimating the household savings in financial assets, while CSO estimates the household savings in physical assets.

Investment is defined as any use of resources intended to increase future

production output or income.

The use of resources/ assets to earn income or profits in future

It involves an individual or an organization placing or lending money


vehicle, instrument or asset

Such as property, commodity, stock, bond, financial derivatives or foreign currency.

That has certain level of risk and provides the possiblity of generating
returns over a period of time

What is the Difference Between Saving and Investing Money?

"savings" are usually put into the safest places or products that allow

you access to your money at any time. Examples include savings accounts, checking accounts, and certificates of deposit. At some banks and savings and loan associations your deposits may be insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). But there's a tradeoff for the security and ready availability of these savings methods: your money is paid a low wage as it works for you. than when you "save." Unlike FDIC-insured deposits, the money you invest in securities, mutual funds, and other similar investments is not federally insured. You could lose your "principal," which is the amount you've invested. Thats true even if you purchase your investments through a bank. But when you invest, you also have the opportunity to earn more money than when you save. There is a tradeoff between the higher risk of investing and the potential for greater rewards.

When you "invest," you have a greater chance of losing your money

What is FDI & FII

Foreign Direct Investment (FDI):
1. FDI stands for Foreign Direct Investment, a component of a country's national financial accounts. 2. Foreign direct investment is investment of foreign assets into domestic structures, equipment, and organizations. 3. It does not include foreign investment into the stock markets. 4. FDI is thought to be more useful to a country than investments in the equity of its companies because equity investments are potentially "hot money" which can leave at the first sign of trouble, whereas FDI is durable and generally useful whether things go well or badly. Foreign Institutional Investment (FII): 1. FII denotes all those investors or investment companies that are not located within the territory of the country in which they are investing. 2. SEBIs definition of FIIs presently includes foreign pension funds, mutual funds, charitable/endowment/university funds etc. as well as asset management companies and other money managers operating on their behalf.

Distinction between FDI and FII

FDI FII 1. It is generally short-term investment 2. Investment in financial assets 3. Aim is to increase capital availability

1. It is long-term investment
2. Investment in physical assets 3. Aim is to increase enterprise capacity or productivity or change management control 4. Leads to technology transfer, access to markets and management inputs 5. FDI flows into the primary market

4. FII results in only capital inflows

5. FII flows into the secondary market

6. Entry and exist is relatively easy 7. FII is eligible for capital gain 8. Tends to be speculative 9. No direct impact on employment of labour and wages 10.Fleeting interest in mgt.

6. Entry and exit is relatively difficult

7. FDI is eligible for profits of the company 8. Does not tend be speculative 9. Direct impact on employment of labour and wages

10.Abiding interest in mgt.



Foreign Direct Investment Policy

Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) cross border investment with an objective to establish lasting interest Objective - to encourage FDI to promote industrial & socio-economic development; supplement domestic capital/ technology Foreign investment in India is regulated by Government of Indias FDI policy. The FDI guidelines administered by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry. Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion (DIPP), Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) and Secretariat of Industrial Assistance (SIA) regulate the FDI Policy GoI has set up the Foreign Investment Implementation Authority (FIIA) to facilitate quick translation of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) approvals into implementation, to provide a one-window to foreign investors by helping them obtain necessary approvals, sort out operational problems and meet with various Government agencies Administrative and compliance aspects of FDI monitored by RBI Since 1991, policy has been liberalized substantially to facilitate foreign investment

Foreign Institutional Investors

FIIs can individually purchase upto 10% and collectively upto 24% of the paid-up share capital of an Indian company This limit of 24% can be increased to sectoral cap/ statutory limit applicable to the Indian company by passing a board resolution/shareholder resolution FIIs can purchase shares through open offers/private placement/stock exchange Shares purchased by FII through arrangement stock exchange cannot be sold through a private

Proprietary funds, foreign individuals and foreign corporates can register as a sub- account and invest through the FII. Separate limits of 10% / 5% is available for the sub-accounts

FIIs can raise money through participatory notes or offshore derivative instruments for investment in the underlying Indian securities
FIIs in addition to investment under the FII route can invest under FDI route


Investment limits on Equity & Debt investments by FII

FII, on its own behalf, shall not invest in equity more than 10% of total issued

capital of an Indian company. Investment on behalf of each sub-account shall not exceed 10% of total issued capital of an India company. For the sub-account registered under Foreign Companies/Individual category, the investment limit is fixed at 5% of issued capital. These limits are within overall limit of 24% / 49 % / or the sectoral caps a prescribed by Government of India / Reserve Bank of India.
investment limits on debt investments by FII For FII investments in Government debt, currently following limits are applicable: 100 % Debt Route US $ 1.55 billion 70 : 30 Route US $ 200 million Total Limit S $ 1.75 billion For corporate debt the investment limit is fixed at US $ 500 million.

What is P-Note: PNs are instruments issued by registered FIIs to overseas investors, who wish to invest in the Indian stock markets without registering themselves with SEBI. Why is P-Note: More than 30% of foreign institutional money coming into India is from hedge funds. Hedge funds, which thrive on arbitrage opportunities, rarely hold a stock for a long time. P-Notes are issued to the real investors on the basis of stocks purchased by the FII. To monitoring investments through P Notes, Sebi decided that FIIs must report P-Notes details. Reporting by FIIs P-Notes issued - 7th day of the following month. The FII merely investing for themselves through P-Notes Quarterly basis FIIs who do not issue PNs but have trades File 'Nil' undertaking on a quarterly basis.

Advantages of FII

Enhanced flows of equity capital FIIs have a greater appetite for equity than debt in their asset structure. It improve capital structures. Managing uncertainty and controlling risks. FII inflows help in financial innovation and development of hedging instruments. Improving capital markets. FIIs as professional bodies of asset managers and financial analysts enhance competition and efficiency of financial markets. Equity market development aids economic development. By increasing the availability of riskier long term capital for projects, and increasing firms incentives to provide more information about their operations, FIIs can help in the process of economic development.

Improved corporate governance.

FIIs constitute professional bodies, improve corporate governance.


Disadvantages of FII
Problems of Inflation

Case Studies and Recommendations


UBS Fraud case

- The funds held in the accounts of the two companies (ADAG Group

)opened in UBS with the approval of RBI were transferred to another account without RBIs approval, by obtaining overdrafts against cash collateral security provided through the funds. - Thereafter, substantial amounts were transferred to certain accounts belonging to 8-10 diamond dealers based in India and Belgium.. - The funds were then passed on from the accounts of the diamond merchants to two funds that in turn invested them in the Indian stock market through FIIs. - Swiss bank UBS has been fined 8 million by UK's Financial Services Authority (FSA) - ED is probing the matter because the transactions may amount to violation of Indian foreign exchange and anti-money laundering laws.

Will the Vodafone case hit FDI?

Case : Show cause notice to Vodafone was issued by Indian Revenue Authorities

arguing that they had failed to discharge withholding tax obligation with respect to tax on gains made by Hutch on sale of shares to Vodafone
The Bombay High court said Vodafone Group Plc is liable for an estimated $2.6

billion in taxes for its 2007 acquisition of one of India's largest mobile phone companies.
Decision as well as the tax departments approach creates tremendous uncertainty

on what aspects of an offshore transaction may fall within the Indian tax net.
Tax practitioners see inherent bottlenecks while computing tax liability on such

The Vodafone judgement will definitely impact foreign investments into India.
This is bound to affect FDI/M&A/PE deals as companies would ascribe a higher tax

weight age risk while entering India. Offshore deals may also start drying up.
But due to growing image and future prospectus of country, we are developing as a
49 prominent nation and FDI would get much strong over the years despite any such issues.

Recommendations for India

Do away with too many caps in the overall regulatory regime. Increase FDI limit for Insurance Sector to 49% from current 26%. Increase FDI limit for Retail Sector. Allow FII 100% ownership Easy access to Foreign Investor by simplifying the approval procedure and industrial license Liberalize the locking period for FII & FDI Allow FDI in investment companies "Better Investment Climate" Need of the Hour. Liberalise the economic policies further so as to overcome the fiscal deficits faced by Indian economy Invite corporate giants from countries like USA, China and south Korea Maintain a balance between domestic companies and foreign companies so as domestic companies could survive in front of foreign giants. 50 50

What is Disinvestment?

In general terms Disinvestment(Dis-investment) is simply selling the equity(share) invested by the government in Public Sector Enterprises(PSU).PSUs are enterprises which are either owned completely by the government or whose shares are maximum owned by the government(51% or above).Examples include BHEL,ONGC etc.


Why is it carried out?

If there is no progress achieved by the PSU or if there

are no profits obtained (some times government may not be able to recover the investment capital also) by it, government sells some part of the equity to private companies. The funds raised by this sale can be used to develop other underperforming PSUs.


Process of Disinvestment
There are two ways of disinvestment. Transfer of complete management to private enterprises. Modern Food Industries, Bharat Aluminum Company Limited (BALCO), VSNL, Centaur Hotel Airport are examples of this kind. Partial selling of shares Here government sells some part of shares. But still it retains majority of them (51% or higher).This has been adopted in majority of cases.


To achieve greater inflow of private capital.

This revenue can be used to compensate the deficit finance. Allows new firms to enter into the market and thus increases competition. Brings the low productivity PSUs back on track thereby improving the quality of goods, eliminating excessive manpower utilization and enabling high profits.


Loss of public interests

PSUs are resources of the nation. They belong to the people. By selling them to private companies, government is seriously affecting the people's welfare.

Fear of foreign control

Selling equities to foreign companies result in serious consequences shifting the nation's wealth, power and control to outsiders.

Issues with workers

The jobs of Lakhs of workers in the PSUs will fall in danger by privatization.

Less number of bidders

Even though government plans to disinvest, there are actually less number of people willing to place their bids.

Apart from these, it is the government and not PSUs who receive funds from

disinvestment. This raises conflicts between the government and the employment union of the PSU.


Example of Disinvestment-The case of Maruti Udyog Ltd

Maruti Udyog Ltd. has been raised as an example where

disinvestment has indeed worked. Approximately 54% of this enterprise was disinvested to Suzuki of Japan. As of May 10, 2007, Govt. of India sold its complete share to Indian financial institutions. With this, Govt. of India no longer has stake in Maruti Udyog. The success of this initiative led the government to believe that the presence of an established giant as the strategic partner would raise the price of the shares. This logic was used in the selling off of the Indian Petrochemical Corporation to the Reliance and VSNL to Tata. The flip side is that the giants became larger rising to the position of near monopolies. Reliance, for instance, controls 68% of the market in petro-chemicals.

(Securities & Exchange Board Of India)


SEBI is the regulator for

Securities Market in India.

Established by the Government of India in 1988 through an executive resolution Was subsequently upgraded as a fully autonomous body (a statutory Board) in the year 1992 with the passing of the SEBI Act on 30th January 1992. In place of Government Control, a statutory and autonomous regulatory board with defined responsibilities, to cover both development & regulation of the market, and independent powers have been set up.


How SEBI came into picture??

The World Bank and the IMF have introduced a benchmark i.e., Financial Services Assessment Programme (FSAP) to strengthen the monitoring of financial systems. The FSAP is designed to foster growth by promoting financial system soundness and financial sector diversity.

The mission of SEBI is to make India as one of the best securities market of the world and SEBI as one of the most respected regulator in the world. SEBI endeavors to achieve the standards of FSAP.


Why do we need a regulatory body for Investor protection in India?

India is an ` informationally ' weak market Boosting capital market demands restoring the confidence of lay investors who have been beaten down by repeated scams Progressively softening interest rates and an under performing economy have eroded investment options, and require enhanced investing skills.

SEBI is headquartered in the popular business district of Bandra-Kurla complex in Mumbai Regional offices
Northern Eastern Southern Western New Delhi Kolkata Chennai Ahmedabad


Basic objectives of the Board were identified as:

to protect the interests of investors in securities; to promote the development of Securities Market; to regulate the securities market and for matters connected therewith or incidental thereto.

In matters of investor protection & orderly development of

Stock prices are changed every day by the

market. Buyers and sellers cause prices to change as they decide how valuable each stock is. share prices change because of supply and demand. If more people want to buy a stock than sell it - the price moves up. Conversely, if more people want to sell a stock, there would be more supply (sellers) than demand (buyers) - the price would start to fall


Volatility in the stock return is an integral part of

stock market with the alternating bull and bear phases. In the bullish market, the share prices soar high and in the bearish market share prices fall down and these ups and downs determine the return and volatility of the stock market.
Volatility is a symptom of a highly liquid stock


market. Pricing of securities depends on volatility of each asset. An increase in stock market volatility brings a large stock price change of advances or declines. Investors interpret a raise in stock market volatility as an increase in the risk of equity investment and consequently they shift their funds to less risky assets.

As a concept, volatility is simple and intuitive. It

measures variability or dispersion about a central tendency. To be more meaningful, it is a measure of how far the current price of an asset deviates from its average past prices. Greater this deviation, greater is the volatility. At a more fundamental level, volatility can indicate the strength or conviction behind a price move.


Volatility. The term volatility indicates how much

and how quickly the value of an investment, market, or market sector changes. For example, because the stock prices of small, newer companies tend to rise and fall more sharply over short periods of time than stock of established, blue-chip companies, small caps are described as more volatile. The volatility of a stock relative to the overall market is known as its beta, and the volatility triggered by internal factors, regardless of the market, is known as a stock's alpha.


What drives equity volatility?

Fundamental factors

Macroeconomic stability volatility of GDP growth

Stabilizing or destabilizing monetary policy, fiscal policy.

Competition on markets - more competition means more uncertain earnings Leverage of firms Indian firms that graduate into MNCs Crises: currency crisis, political crises Liquidity of the market: be able to absorb shocks to the Order flow.

Factors internal to the securities markets

Securities trading issues: adequate supply of rational

Traders - individuals, hedge funds, arbitrageurs. Crises: payments crisis, scandal on the market, regulatory Crackdown giving adverse shocks to liquidity.


What can help reduce equity market volatility?

Fundamental factors

Reduction in GDP growth volatility

Firms with more equity financing Indian firms that are MNCs Avoid currency crisis, avoid political crises.

Factors internal to the securities markets

More liquidity More rational traders Avoid crises : payments crisis, scandal on the market,

Regulatory crackdown giving adverse shocks to liquidity.

Role of Retail Investors

Long Term Investors
retail and mass customers have a longer tenure

AUM than high networth individuals (HNIs). Small-ticket-size investors account for a large part of ELSS and SIP investments, which are inherently long term. Most of these investors are likely to have done their own research and are comfortable investing in products for a longer duration.
Fundamental Investors
Invest in companies with good fundamentals
Bring efficiency to capital market
