Foreign investment in Sri Lankan stocks hit all-time high in 2017
Nov 22, 2017 16:35 PM GMT+0530 | 0 Comment(s)



ECONOMYNEXT – Foreign investment in Sri Lankan companies listed on the Colombo Stock Exchange in 2017 has hit an all-time high during a year, with Rs105.1 billion in foreign purchases so far this year, passing the record Rs104.7 billion in 2014.

The Colombo Stock Exchange said in a statement said the development follows signs of renewed foreign interest in the stock market in mid-2017.

During this period foreign buying doubled to that in the first half of 2016 and recorded an all-time high for foreign purchases in the first half of a calendar year.

“Such foreign purchases have contributed to a net foreign purchase figure of Rs18.9 billion year-to-date, a figure that is substantial compared to foreign activity in 2015/16,” the CSE said.

“Growing foreign interest in the market has also contributed to a 30% improvement in the Daily Average Turnover, where the figure has improved to Rs955 million (year-to-date) from Rs737 million in 2016.”

The CSE said foreign investors have been quick to identify buying opportunities in Sri Lankan stocks.

“An attractive market valuation (P/E), encouraging performance among listed entities, dividend payments, and capital gains tax exemptions offered to share transactions are considered to be defining factors in attracting the level of foreign investor interest the market has witnessed in 2017.”

CSE’s Head of Market Development Niroshan Wijesundere said that improving levels of foreign investor involvement has provided the CSE an opportunity to create awareness on the stock market across all investor segments.

The market continues to trade at a discount compared to regional peers and offers further opportunities for investors - with a market P/E recorded at 10.72 as of today and a majority of listed companies trading below book value, he said.

“The macroeconomic outlook continuing to improve will also offer both foreign and local investors further confidence in the Sri Lankan stock market,” Wijesundere added.

The CSE in association with the Securities and Exchange Commission of Sri Lanka (SEC) resumed a concentrated effort to create awareness on the opportunities in the capital market in key foreign markets this year, through ‘Invest Sri Lanka’ Forums in Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland and most recently in New York.

Foreign Institutional Investors and Sri Lankans living abroad present at these events indicated a sense of optimism on the investment opportunities surrounding progressive economic reforms presently being implemented in the country, the CSE said.

Foreign purchases in the stock market originating from Australia in a particular year recorded an all-time high in 2017, with a figure of Rs651 million by the week that ended 17th November 2017, it said.

“A strong community of individuals with a Sri Lankan origin eager to look at new Sri Lankan investment opportunities and the celebration of 70 years of diplomatic ties between Sri Lanka and Australia presented the CSE with a unique opportunity to promote the capital market in Australia this year.”

The CSE and SEC have also launched an island-wide local retail investor focused Investor Forum campaign to create awareness on the record foreign investment and the potential opportunities in the market for local investors, it said.

The CSE and the Colombo Stock Brokers Association are also presently conducting a series of events presenting investment research on companies featured on the S&P SL 20 Index, to an audience of Local Institutional Investors, another key investor segment in the Sri Lankan stock market.

Foreign direct investment (FDI) is an investment made by a firm or individual in one country into business interests located in another country. Generally, FDI takes place when an investor establishes foreign business operations or acquires foreign business assets, including establishing ownership or controlling interest in a foreign company.
Foreign investment involves capital flows from one country to another, granting extensive ownership stakes in domestic companies and assets. Foreign investment denotes that foreigners have an active role in management as a part of their investment.
