About the Conference

Economies across the globe have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic early 2020. Capital Markets in India during the same period have seen a bullish trend despite challenging economic outlook. On a positive note, the bulging NPA levels have witnessed a downward trend thanks to the active role of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC). The likely strengthening of banks’ financials is expected to streamline credit flows which is one of the key drivers of growth of a country. In hindsight, the markets seem to be insulated from the vagaries of the macroeconomic factors. The Indian market is valued at almost twice that of China’s capital market. A major part of foreign direct investments into India is in the form of portfolio investments in the capital markets. This is due to printing of currencies by world economies to overcome the recessionary trend. The additional currencies have flown into emerging markets like India. Whether the bullish trend is transitory or not hinges on the Central Bank’s decision on key policy rates and macroeconomic outlook of the future. Given the integrated nature of the global markets, change in key policy rates of the U.S becomes a critical determinant of the bull run in India. The dynamics of corporate finance and the functioning of capital markets are expected to change in this new normal. The conference provides a platform to deliberate on the aforesaid issues.

Enthused by the resounding success of the earlier international conferences on Finance, Accounting and Banking, SDMIMD takes pleasure in announcing the 9th International Conference on 28th and 29th of October,2021.

The conference is organized under the aegis of BCIC (Bangalore Chamber of Industry and Commerce) – SDMIMD Center for Management Excellence.
