Foreign investment up in February by $6.1 billion, Statistics Canada says

OTTAWA - Statistics Canada says foreign investment in Canadian securities grew by $6.1 billion in February and this was matched by Canadian purchases of $6 billion in foreign securities.

It says non-residents bought $2.2 billion in Canadian bonds, following two straight months of divestment.

Foreigners invested $2.3 billion in the Canadian money market, with purchases diversified across all sectors, except the federal government.

Foreign investors also put money into the Canadian stock market in February, buying $1.6 billion worth of equities.

Canadian acquisitions abroad targeted a broad range of foreign securities, led by bonds.

Canadians put $2.7 billion into foreign bonds, mainly in foreign currency-denominated instruments
