The combined share of sovereign wealth and pension funds is now $35 billion while that of FIIs in Indian equities was $216 billion at the end of December. The share of these long-term investors, which are going to stay invested in select stocks, in total FII inflows has averaged 9-10% in the last two years.

Pension and sovereign wealth funds are investing more in Indian stocks 

Dalal Street all Cheers for the Change

Pension and sovereign wealth funds are transferring shares from countries such as China, South Korea, Russia and Brazil because of reviving macroeconomic conditions. The rising allocation of funds such as sovereign wealth and pension funds is good news for Indian equity markets. They usually invest for a long term which would bring a lot of stability to Indian markets. 

The investors aren't relying on the results of April-May polls. As the latter this time are going to be quite unpredictable, long-term investors are therefore considering India's growth as the deciding factor. Global emerging market, or GEM, has experienced an outflow of funds amounting to $30 billion in the past six months while India saw an inflow of $10 billion in the same period. Such increased inflow of funds explain the improvement in India's macro environment compared with the year-ago levels. 

The fiscal and current account deficits have become better. This is happening when various other major emerging markets such as China, Brazil, Russia and South Africa are having a hard time handling their issues and comparatively India is doing a lot better. FIIs invested $20 billion and $24 billion into Indian equities in 2012 and 2013, respectively. So far, they have invested a total of $3.2 billion. 

Sovereign wealth funds such as Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, Kuwait Investment Authority and that of Norway have been the leading investors in Indian markets. Abu Dhabi Investment Authority holds 2.47% in InfosysBSE 1.12 % and 1% in Larsen & Toubro while Kuwait Investment Authority holds 1.62% in Sadbhav Engineering BSE -1.94 %. In February, Bank Norges, which manages Norway's sovereign fund, raised its share in Indian Hotels to 5%.
