Mumbai, India
– 28 October 2021: Building on the success of last year’s virtual event, CLSA India will bring together over 100 leading Indian corporates for virtual meetings with more than 500 institutional investors from across the globe. The four-day event will also feature a lineup of distinguished thought leaders, policy experts and government officials, plus highly-rated CLSA India analysts.

With the path out of the pandemic in sight, this year’s Forum will delve into the government policies supporting post-pandemic recovery, challenges facing banking-system growth, green initiatives and new-tech opportunities in the finance and consumer sectors. Beyond India, we will look at China’s business strategies, current industry trends, developments in the digital space and key takeaways from our global Investors’ Forum in September 2021.

This year’s India Forum is divided into four key themes: Post-Covid India; Meeting challenges; Leveraging opportunities and Emerging leaders. These themed days will offer in-depth views on the most important trends driving investment decisions and potential returns in India.

Sonal Jain, Country Head at CLSA India, said: “Despite many challenges, both perceived and real, India has endured the impact of Covid-19. Investors’ appreciation for how well we have met challenges posed by the coronavirus is reflected in the strong market rebound – from early underperformance at the onset of the pandemic to a historic outperformance relative to peers in late 2021.”

Indranil Sen Gupta, Economist and Head of Research at CLSA India, added: “The Reserve Bank of India has stockpiled forex reserves, which substantially de-risked the growth story during Covid-19 waves. This should encourage strong portfolio flows, especially as a number of new-economy companies begin to come of age.”

Kai Kaufmann, Head of Corporate Access and Client Strategy at CLSA, said: “In 2020, the 23rd Annual CITIC CLSA India Forum moved to a virtual platform, ensuring its continued success despite the challenges presented by Covid-19. This year’s event will feature more than 20 webinars and just under 300 virtual meetings, all accessible via our state-of-the-art conference website, which was built to deliver a smooth, user-friendly virtual experience across all engagement formats. Now in its 24th year, the Annual CITIC CLSA India Forum has become a not-to-miss event in the calendars of international investors.”
