A CFA Institute Sponsored Event

A candid no-holds barred discussion, with C-suite leaders from the investment management industry in India, on the path and roadblocks to India becoming the fourth largest economy in the next 5-7 years. Is India on a path to sustainable growth? Will current macro and microeconomic indicators support this growth? What are the inherent risks and challenges of doing business in India, and what are the mitigating factors, if any? What are current and upcoming investment opportunities in India? How does India stack up vis-à-vis other emerging economies?

This event will provide participants with:

  • An in-depth understanding of India, and the opportunities and challenges in the country.
  • Update on key reforms in India and the resulting impact.
  • Opportunity to connect and network with C-suite leaders of the investment industry in India.
  • An in-depth and factual understanding of the India economy, including regulatory evolution, investment opportunities and micro/macroeconomic factors.
  • Strong understanding of inherent risks and challenges of doing business in India, and mitigating factors.
