Tyagi was of the view that the increasing number of registrations of FPIs every year and increasing inflows of FPI investment in the Indian equity market signify the sustained interest of the foreign investors in the Indian capital markets.

“Considering that the largest number of FPIs and about one third of the total assets under custody of FPIs are from USA, the importance of US investments into India was emphasized especially taking into account the growing partnership between the two countries,” the SEBI Chairman said.
