Foreign investment in securities strong in November: Statistics Canada

OTTAWA - Statistics Canada says foreign investors added $8.7 billion of Canadian securities to their holdings in November.

The agency says this marked a fifth-straight month of foreign investment and largely involved corporate securities.

Meanwhile, Canadian investors acquired $6.6 billion of foreign securities, all bonds.

Foreign investors acquired $3.4 billion of Canadian debt securities in November, with funds moving out of Canadian money market instruments and into Canadian bonds.

Foreign investors continued to favour corporate bonds during the month, adding $7.9 billion to their portfolios, evenly split between private corporate and federal government business enterprise bonds.
