Abstract Inflation has a significant impact on equity markets as it can lead to a reduction in purchasing power and a reduction in real income, which in turn affects the cost of equity. While inflation generally has a negative impact on equity markets, it can have a positive effect in some cases. Investors in the Indian stock market can react to inflation by adapting their investment strategies, including changes in asset allocation, sector rotation, risk management, monitoring central banks ‘activities and adjusting their investment horizon. Institutional Investors (IIs), such as pension funds, insurance companies and mutual funds, may adjust their investment strategies in order to include more inflation-linked assets, such as Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS) or inflation-indexed bonds, in order to preserve their purchasing power. In addition, their portfolios can be reallocated to assets less susceptible to the negative effects of inflation, such as equities, gold and real estate. Institutional Investors can also move their investments to sectors that tend to perform well during inflationary periods, such as consumer staples, utilities and natural resources. In addition, risk management strategies, such as diversification, hedging, or investment in inflation-protected securities, may be used to protect portfolios from inflation-induced volatility. Finally, Institutional Investors closely monitor the central bank's activities, such as interest rates of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and monetary policy adjustments, which may affect inflationary expectations and market sentiment. This study aims to analyse the impact of inflation on Institutional Investors’(IIs) investment behaviour in the Indian stock market.
