FII stands for ‘foreign institutional investor,’ and refers to an investment fund or an investor who puts their money into a country’s assets while being headquartered outside of it. In India, this is a commonly used term to refer to outside entities contributing to the country’s financial markets by investing. On the other hand, ‘DII’ stands for ‘domestic institutional investors.’ Unlike FIIs, DIIs are investors that invest in the financial assets and securities of the country they are currently residing in.
These investment decisions of both FIIs and DIIs are impacted by political and economic trends. Additionally, both types of investors — foreign institutional investors (FIIs) and domestic institutional investors (DIIs) — can impact the economy’s net investment flows.
