15 of world's top 20 pension funds head for India
Foreign pension funds

Foreign pension funds are making a beeline for India despite the turmoil in global markets. More than 40 such funds (endowments and university and family foundations) have registered with the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) in the past seven or eight months.


The Bombay Stock Exchange~s benchmark Sensex is more than 40 per cent off its peak this year. Yet out of the top 20 global pension funds, more than 15 are investing in India, according to Watson Wyatt.


Watson Wyatt estimated global pension assets at $24,932 billion at the end of last year. Even if India were to receive 5 per cent of this, it will mean a boom for Indian markets.


~From what we have learnt allocations to emerging market equities are certainly going up simply because developed markets are slowing down, said Rashmi Mehrotra, business leader at investment consulting firm Mercer, which advises pensions, endowments and charities on the relative returns of fund managers managing different asset classes.
