About the Conference

The Indian financial markets have evolved significantly over the last few decades. However, the current global economic landscape presents numerous challenges that have the potential to impact the trajectory of these markets. The economic liberalisation has been one of the key drivers of the Indian financial markets apart from rapid technological advancements. Advancement in technology particularly in the fintech space, have revolutionized the way financial transactions are carried out in India, providing a more accessible and efficient platform for various market participants. The consistent growth of the Indian economy, coupled with a burgeoning middle class, has led to increased disposable incomes and a growing appetite for investments in equities, mutual funds, and other financial instruments. Global headwinds caused by rising interest rates across the world including in the U.S could lead to capital outflows from emerging markets like India, putting downward pressure on asset prices and currency. The ongoing geopolitical conflicts and trade disputes may adversely affect the global economy, and in turn, influence the Indian financial markets by hampering international trade and investments. While the Indian financial markets have shown remarkable resilience and adaptability in the face of global headwinds, they are not immune to the risks and uncertainties that stem from external factors. The conference provides a platform for a free-wheeling discussion on the aforesaid issues.

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