Recent Value of the Indian Rupee

Posted by USFC Team on Dec 22, 2017 4:55:00 PM

The Indian rupee has remained stable over the course of several years, primarily due to norms put in place by the RBI. However, the volatility of the rupee’s movement is seen clustered around the global crisis period of 2008 and then again during the eventual slowing down of the Indian market economy due to QE programs abroad. The tight regulatory framework of the RBI is what constrained the rupee against the dollar amidst this volatility. Traditionally, the movement was kept by the reserve bank such that it remained within a window where exports became competitive. In contrast, the strength of the rupee today is a result of a strong inflow of capital traded that the rupee is facing due to artificially low interest rates across the globe and excess liquidity.

Is This the Right Time for Indians to Invest in US Healthcare?

Posted by David Gunderson on Dec 8, 2017 8:26:10 AM

In India, full capital account convertibility of the rupee is still a distant dream. Putting aside positive and negative macro-economic arguments, it has been difficult for domestic investors to take advantage of global lowering of interest rates, especially with Indian stock markets and industries showing early signs of overinvestment. Moreover, with the recent slowdown of economic productivity within the country, there are certain investment avenues that domestic investors could take advantage of in other developed countries, where growth is recovering, and interest rates are relatively lower. Debt funds are priced better in a low inflation expecting economy and would be highly priced compared to a high inflation economy, especially bonds with fixed interest rates.
