Bonds see momentum

In the dynamic landscape of the financial markets, the corporate bond market has experienced remarkable expansion.

“In FY23, private placements garnered 7.5 lakh crore ($94 billion), and in the current fiscal year, FY24, we have already witnessed a substantial raise of 4.15 lakh crore ($52 billion) by October. It's to be noted that this strong momentum includes obtaining money through private placements," said Abhijit Roy, CEO, of GoldenPi.

As per Roy, pivotal developments are poised to shape the landscape into FY25. “SEBI's initiative to reduce the ticket size from 10 lakh to 1 lakh since January 1, 2023, fosters increased retail investor participation which has increased from a mere 0.7 percent in FY22 to 2 percent in FY23 and is currently at 4 percent with the potential for further the positive outlook for further increase in the very near future," he said.

In the public sector, the National Bank of Financing Infrastructure and Development (NABFID), along with Public Sector Banks (PSBs) and Indian Infrastructure Financiers, are aiming to generate funds worth 30,000 ahead of elections. While NABFID is planning a bond sale of around 10,000 crore, the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway is mulling to collect worth 3,000 crore.
