Mary Manning, Portfolio Manager at Ellerston Asian Investments (ASX:EAI), is drawn to the growth opportunities available in India. She explains that many of the challenges facing Australian industries are the reverse in India, creating powerful tailwinds. This short video highlights three ways Mary is investing in India’s stunning growth outlook.
- Loan growth in India is running at 25 – 30 percent which contrasts with loan growth in Australia in the low single digits.
- The regulatory environment is very supportive of the financial industry and looking to extend credit to consumers that are seeking it.
- Valuations remains attractive given the positive tailwinds.
Consumer shares - Automotive
- Auto penetration in India is about 4% of what it is in Australia. There is a huge amount of pent up demand as the rising middle class comes through.
- Maruti Suzuki (NSE:MARUTI) is a key pick to gain exposure to this demand.
- Infrastructure is a huge push for the Modhi Government going into the 2019 election.
- Getting the Indian economy moving via investments in ports, roads and highways is a major priority.
- Larsen & Toubro Limited (NSE:LT) is the largest infrastructure stock in India and is a key pick to gain exposure to this theme.
