Understand what is FPI investment

>> Foreign portfolio investment (FPI) is done in a foreign country in the form of financial assets such as stocks and bonds.

>> In this investment, non-residents of a country invest in securities including shares, government bonds, corporate bonds, convertible securities, infrastructure etc.

>> An FPI investment is aimed at achieving short-term financial gains and not to gain significant control over the managerial operations of the business.

>> This investment does not provide with direct ownership of the property and is relatively liquid considering the volatility of the market.

>> The FPI is conducted directly by the investor.
