Macquarie increases presence in india

Australia's Macquarie Securities Group has made six new appointments for its India business, joining the likes of international banks such as Credit Suisse in expanding here as traditional markets shrink.

Macquarie has more than 160 people in India and plans to expand despite an uncertain short-term economic outlook and turbulent financial markets in India and abroad, Stuart Smythe, head of equity in India, told a news conference.

India's stock market recovered its $1 trillion in market value last month, helped by the biggest drop in commodity prices in 28 years. Record stock sales by overseas investors led to the biggest first-half slump in the benchmark Sensitive Index since its 1979 creation.

"Our model is to use the downturn to expand and we are following it in India," Smythe said. "We see plenty of opportunities with increasing wealth and equity participation."

India's main share index has fallen a quarter in 2008 and the central bank has also raised interest rates to a seven-year high to rein in 12 percent inflation.

A government report earlier in day said it expected the economy to grow 7.7 percent, cooling from a year before and below a forecast of 8 percent by the central bank, as tight monetary policy and global turmoil moderates growth.

International banks hurt by credit-related losses are seeing business shrink in the west and are concentrating on developing markets such as India for growth.

On Monday, Credit Suisse said it had hired three investment bankers in India

Lone Pine Capital LLC, run by Stephen Mandel, and Traxis Partners LLC are among 56 overseas funds that registered to buy shares in India in July, the most in six months

India is one of the bigger beneficiaries of commodity and oil weakness as money flows from commodity-producer countries to consumers,'' said Samir Arora, who oversees $1 billion at Helios Capital Management in Singapore and received regulatory approval on July 21. ``Foreign institutional-investor selling has normally marked a bottom, it will be the same again

The major factor behind the rally in Indian stocks is the price of oil,'' said Uri Landesman, who oversees international equities at ING Investment Management in New York. ``If oil continues to fade, and I think it is likely we see $110 before $125, Indian stocks will continue to outperform. If, however, oil heads back up, Mumbai will plummet.''
