Hong Kong – 17 August 2022: CLSA will host its 25th Annual CITIC CLSA India Forum LIVE in Mumbai from 14 – 16 November 2022 (Monday – Wednesday). After two years of virtual conferences, CLSA is delighted to be back on the ground in India. The Forum is a must-attend event for investors looking to tap into the massive potential of the local market. This year in Mumbai we will bring together around 90 leading Indian corporates and more than 200 institutional investors as well as an impressive lineup of distinguished expert speakers and award-winning CLSA analysts.
With countries across the world gradually easing international travel restrictions and city lockdowns, this November will be the perfect month to set foot in India and explore the country’s wealth of investment opportunities. The market offers a safe haven amid global volatility as central banks across the world fight to temper inflation and revive post-pandemic economies. This is backed by the Reserve Bank of India’s high forex reserves which provides a powerful medium-term buffer that offers relative insulation from international instability.
Sonal Jain, Country Head at CLSA India, said: “Amid global uncertainty, the Indian market provided some excellent relative performances. However, this also led to significant foreign selling as investors sought to rebalance their country portfolios. With this phase now largely over, the focus will shift back to macro fundamentals and domestic earnings. We will explore these trends at our upcoming India Forum from top-down and bottom-up perspectives.”
Renowned for its original content and investible ideas, this year our Forum will examine the latest government policies, provide checks on demand and capex dynamics, and share insights into new finance and consumer tech opportunities. The Forum will also explore innovative business strategies, current industry trends and key takeaways from our Flagship Investors’ Forum in September.
Indranil Sen Gupta, Economist and Head of Research at CLSA India, added: “We see India as a safe haven from global shocks, protected by the Reserve Bank of India’s high forex reserves. While a slowdown in developed markets will hurt all emerging markets, high share of domestic demand in GDP will buoy India. For this reason, we expect India’s GDP to emerge as the third-largest in the world within the next 10 years, in nominal US-dollar terms. We invite investors to join us in Mumbai to learn about India’s compelling story firsthand, after a two-year gap due to Covid-19 shocks.”
Shaun Cochran, Head of Research at CLSA, said: “We are very excited to host the 25th Annual CITIC CLSA India Forum live in Mumbai. As the world gradually recovers from the pandemic, India will be the perfect place for investors to meet in person with corporate representatives and to discuss the market’s economic outlook this November. Our Forum will provide face-to-face corporate access for global investors and we will also host a select number of unique post-Forum tours in India, to give visitors the opportunity to discover exciting domestic stories.”
