Nifty Outperforms Most Global Peers In FY22; Investor Wealth Soared Rs 60 Lakh Cr

By Malvika Gurung -- While the financial year 2022-23 has been nothing short of a rollercoaster ride, it has cemented how resilient domestic investors behaved despite the year presenting one headwind after another in the markets.

The second half of FY22 was majorly dictated by soaring inflation figures, leading to imminent aggressive interest rate hikes by the US Fed, along with the Russia-Ukraine disturbances resulting in a war breaking out in Feb 2022 and continues without any major sign of de-escalation.

All these factors sent oil prices flying to their 14-year peaks, rattling global markets.

Despite major headwinds, Indian benchmark indices Nifty 50 and BSE Sensex managed to close the year far better than their global peers.

  • Nifty zoomed 19% in FY22 and 5% in March despite the month being turbulent.
  • 30-scrip Sensex gained 18.3% in the FY, surging 5.5% in March 2022.
  • Investor wealth soared over Rs 59.75 lakh crore in FY22.
  • In March, domestic investors gained more than Rs 12 lakh crore and over Rs 5 lakh crore in 2022 so far.
  • Broader markets outperformed their headline peers, as NIFTY Midcap 100 and NIFTY Smallcap 100 surged over 25%.
  • Sectoral indices Nifty Media and Nifty Metal have rallied over 50% in FY22.
  • Also, Nifty Media hit a 6-month high in March 2022, rising over 15%.
  • Nifty snapped its 2-month losing streak in March and posted the best result in 7 months. 
  • Besides Nifty Auto , all sectoral indices listed on the Nifty basket ended the month in green.
