Institutional Investing Trends

Last year has been a wonderful year to go elephant hunting. Banks were hurting and buried under bad debt, FIIs were selling Indian debt on the back of a collapsing Rupee, this pretty much made domestic bond funds the lender of last resort. Supply, combined with the fact that commissions on selling debt funds are way more lucrative than those on equity, lead to a DII (Domestic Institutional Investor) debt binge.
