The number of Ultra High Net Worth Individuals (UHNWI) are estimated to increase to 10,354 in 2024 from 5,986 in 2019.

India has scored a perfect 10 in protecting shareholders' rights on the back of reforms implemented by Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) in the World Bank's Ease of Doing Business 2020 report.

The asset management industry in India is among the fastest growing in the world. In March 2019, corporate investors Assets Under Management (AUM) stood at Rs 9.55 lakh crore (US$ 136.59 billion), while HNWIs and retail investors reached Rs 7.52 lakh crore (US$ 107.55 billion) and Rs 6.30 lakh crore (US$ 90.12 billion), respectively. In the Asia-Pacific region, India is among the top five countries in terms of HNWIs.

Equity mutual funds registered a net inflow of Rs 8.04 trillion (US$ 114.06 billion) by end of December 2019.

The Government of India has taken various steps to deepen reforms in the capital market, including simplification of the IPO process, which allows qualified foreign investors (QFIs) to access the Indian bond market. In 2019, investment in Indian equities by foreign portfolio investors (FPI) touched five-year high of Rs 101,122 crore (US$ 14.47 billion). Investment by FPIs in the Indian capital market reached a net Rs 12.46 trillion (US$ 178.28 billion) between FY02-FY20 (till March 2020).

The Government has also approved 100 per cent FDI for insurance intermediaries. The insurance sector could be opened to 74 per cent FDI from the existing 49 per cent.
