smallcase Managers speaking at the event
On 24th November, a panel of smallcase Managers will discuss “Does India Need More Fund Managers?” The panel consists of popular smallcase Managers – Alok Jain, Founder, Weekend Investing; and Divam Sharma, Founder, Green Portfolio. This discussion shall be moderated by Rakesh Rathod, Vice President, smallcase.
As the Indian economy continues to grow and see its best years ahead, there is an increasing need for fund managers who can help investors protect and generate wealth and invest the country’s capital wisely. While there are already a number of fund managers in India, it is estimated that the country will need even more in the coming years in order to keep up with the demand.
There are a number of reasons why India needs more fund managers. First, the country’s population is continuing to grow, which means there are more people who need to be able to save and invest for their future. Second, the Indian economy is becoming more complex, making it more difficult for individual investors to navigate on their own. Finally, as the country’s capital markets continue to develop, there is an increasing need for professional fund managers who can help identify and invest in the best opportunities.
This is good news for those looking to enter the profession, as there will be plenty of opportunities for growth and development. Given the growing exposures, there’s requirement of more coverage and ideas and strategies that professionals can help investors navigate through for their unique financial needs and goals. This webinar will focus on this conversation.
