While China has taken center stage for global investors over the past decade, the majority of individuals and institutions alike have overlooked the opportunity to invest in a largely underappreciated, under-invested, dynamic, and reforming economy: India. Since the early 1990s, India's?government has promoted reforms that have created sustainable 7 1/2 to 8 percent annual growth, with no slow-down in sight. But while the investment world is now beginning to pay serious attention to India, the level of exposure to this market continues to be relatively minor, and the average investor's knowledge of India is minimal.

It provides the necessary information about Indian financial institutions, such as the stock exchanges and regulatory structure; the strength of these institutions; the safety and integrity of the market; and the trading and settlement process.
