South Korea sees investment opportunity in India’s rapid growth

Korean institutional investors are increasingly directing investments toward India, drawn by its fast-growing economy, robust domestic demand, and infrastructure projects. With India’s economy expected to grow by 7-8% this year, bolstered by initiatives like ‘Make In India’, South Korea sees it as a lucrative investment arena, shifting focus from China due to its economic slowdown and tensions with the US. The Korea Investment Corp. (KIC) is at the forefront, planning to open a Mumbai office to explore ventures in capital, private equity, infrastructure, and real estate, anticipating India’s IT boom and infrastructure development. This move aligns with a broader trend among Korean investors expanding beyond traditional stocks and bonds into diverse assets, positioning KIC as a pioneer for other Korean entities in India’s promising market.
