Spillover effects of foreign institutional investments in India


  • Harendra Kumar Behera


This paper examines the relationship between investments by foreign institutional investors (FIIs) and financial markets in India. By using a bivariate asymmetric BEKK-GARCH (1, 1) model, we find that FII investments are largely driven by profit opportunities available in financial markets. Granger causality-in-mean test results also validate these findings. Estimates from variance equation and Granger causality-in-variance tests provide the evidence of volatility spillover from FII investments to stock market and forex market. The results show the presence of volatility transmission from exchange rate movements to FII activity. However, we did not find any causality-in-variance from stock market to FII investments. The sub-sample analyses suggest an increase in volatility spillover from FII activity to financial markets in India during the post global financial crisis period.
