FICCI's Corporate Finance Conference- 'Meeting the Funding needs of the Indian Economy' on Jan 12, 2011 in Mumbai


FICCI's Corporate Finance Conference- 'Meeting the Funding needs of the Indian Economy' on Jan 12, 2011 at Hotel Trident, Nariman Point, Mumbai.

With the economy expected to grow at around 9 per cent in the coming years, the financial needs of the economy are expected to commensurately increase. Thus, there is a need for the financial sector to gear up to meet the funding requirements of India Inc. as well as ensure sufficient flow of funds for the infrastructure sector, which will have a significant role to play in supporting sustained economic growth. Although the regulator and government have made several relaxations in the recent past, there are several more reforms required to ensure flow of funds to the exports and infrastructure sector that require further deliberation, as well as the role to be played by Private Equity.

The audience for the conference would broadly include bankers and investment professionals from the financial sector and CFOs and finance managers from the corporate sector. We hope that this conference will be a step towards creating a better synergistic relationship between government and industry for identifying solutions for major road blocks facing the economy to meet double digit growth. With this conference as a platform, we hope to lay the foundation for:

• Capital for economic growth and impending financial sector reforms

• Funding the infrastructure sector and requisite reforms for the sector.

• Role of capital markets in funding India’s growth (including discussions on instruments such as the corporate bonds and credit default swaps and need for innovative instruments)

• Private Equity and its role in India’s growth story
