Goldman Sachs believes that India remains an attractive long-term destination for foreign portfolio investors (FPIs). However, it added the Indian equity markets are less likely to outperform its peers in the year 2023 as the valuations look expensive, leaving little room for upside.
Lastly, the overseas investment banker has pegged RBI’s repo rate to be around 6.75% by February 2023, which is currently at 5.90%.
This suggests hikes of 85 basis points (bps) in the next three months.
