South Korea has seen $115.8 billion in net inflows of portfolio investment in stocks, bonds and others for the past four years since the US-originated financial crisis.

Portfolio investment could be pumped or drained drastically, depending on quantitative easing in major economies such as the US.

According to data compiled by the IMF, portfolio investment in Korea has surged since 2009 like other emerging countries, said the Bank of Korea (BOK) Friday.

The nation had witnessed net outflows of portfolio investment for four straight years with a net outflow of $2.4 billion in 2008. But it swung to a net inflow of $49.7 billion in 2009, $42.5 billion in 2010, $13.1 billion in 2011 and $10.1 billion in 2012.

A plethora of portfolio investment flooded into emerging countries and raised the value of their assets including stocks and bonds on the back of the global liquidity injected by major economies’ quantitative easing after the financial crisis.

However, since portfolio investment could easily turn back to the US and other advanced economies once the US Federal Reserve tapers down quantitative easing, it is emerging as the biggest downside risk to global financial markets.
