TAIPEI -- Foreign investors recorded net fund inflows in March, the seventh consecutive month in which foreign investors brought more than funds into Taiwan than the funds expatriated overseas, according to government statistics released Friday.
The Financial Supervisory Commission, the country's top financial regulator, said foreign investors recorded a net fund inflow of US$3.25 billion in March, the highest monthly figure in six months, the FSC said.
Over the past seven months, net fund inflow by foreign investors totaled US$13.70 billion, the government agency said.
In the first three months of this year, foreign institutional investors served as net buyers of NT$79.06 billion (US$2.61 billion) worth of shares on the main board, while buying a net NT$10.95 billion worth of shares on the over-the-counter market, the FSC said.
