Due to a variety of contrasting developments, India’s bond market has attracted a lot of attention in recent times. Crucial reforms, such as a new bankruptcy code, promise a bright future. Meanwhile, a meltdown in non-bank financial debt presents serious obstacles.
An increase in government bond issuance has chiefly driven the market’s growth. Corporate bond issuance, on the other hand, has remained mostly flat. Further expansion should be underpinned by an easing of the limits on foreign ownership and the country’s inclusion in global bond benchmarks.
Fixed income funds in India represent more than half of the country’s INR26.3 trillion of assets under management, a figure that is set to increase as the bond market develops. It augurs well for CFA® charterholders and candidates looking to pursue a role in fixed income fund management.
