How do extreme global shocks affect foreign portfolio investment? An event study for India

By Anick Yaha, Nirvikar Singh and Jean Paul Rabanal


Foreign portfolio flows in and out of India are relevant for policymakers, and are often portrayed in the media as having a destabilizing effect on the domestic market.

We do not find strong evidence of abnormal responses, even for the case of the global crisis of 2008
