With inflation being much higher here than what it is globally, exposure from Indian stocks is divergent compared to global markets
Most investors have a huge home bias. What this means is that most investors prefer to invest in their home markets. Sample this: investors in the US invest about 73% in their home market when the US stock market accounts for 50% of global equities. Those in the UK invest around 50% at home, when the UK stock market makes up only 10% of global stocks. Indians invest nearly 98-100% of their equity portfolios in the Indian stock market, which is only 2-3% of the global stock markets. In that sense, the home bias is more severe in the case of Indian investors.
