Moody’s Demote Of India’s Outlook Is “Flawed” Says Mark Mobius

Recently, veteran emerging markets shareholder Mark Mobius stated that Moody’s decision to demote India’s ratings outlook was “wrong.” Mobius—who has for long been optimistic about India—stated he does not approve of the ratings agency’s evaluation that the nation’s development will be subdued. Moody’s reported the change in its prospect for India’s ratings to “negative” from “stable” partly showed lower administration and policy efficiency in addressing flaws in the financial system. He said to CNBC, “I feel Moody’s call was flawed, I don’t believe it was called for as I see incredible growth coming in India ahead. I think that a lot of the reformations are going to actually begin to roll out and have big repercussions on the financial system going forward.”

Reportedly, Mobius is the founding associate of Mobius Capital Partners. India is going through a major slowdown. Its financial growth hit a 6-Year low during the April–June period, during which the economy surged 5% from the last year. An ongoing predicament in the finance domain has constrained lending and affected investments, whilst recent regulation reformations have left SMEs (small-and-medium businesses) reeling. The country’s economy is also finding it difficult to create sufficient jobs for its workforce.

Speaking of the Indian economy, recently Prime Minister Narendra Modi said to BRICS bloc that India is world’s most open and investment-friendly economy. Modi addressed to business leaders of the BRICS group in Brasilia and urged them to invest in the nation and take benefit of its “unlimited” possibilities. Modi stated the five nations of the BRICS bloc were briefing financial growth at a time of universal economic slowdown. He said, “India is the most flexible and investment-friendly nation in the world owing to predictable policy, political stability, and business-friendly reformations. By the end of 2024, we aim to make India a 5-Trillion-dollar economy. The infrastructure for that needs $1.5 Trillion of investment.”
