securities such as bonds, debentures, stocks,
warrants, options, domestic mutual funds,
etc., with an intent to get financial gain.

management control of the firm in which they
invest as it is a short-term investment plan.
Bigger loss or risk is involved in making of FII as
foreign shareholders cannot sue the domestic
stock exchange or the public entity in which they
invested their money.
It is easy to sell off the shares in FII.
The probability of withdrawal of FII is greater
than that of FDI.
