Mumbai, India – 14 November 2022: The 25th Annual CITIC CLSA India Forum opens LIVE in Mumbai today with 700+ delegates from 16 countries in attendance, including around 100 leading Indian corporates and 350+ institutional investors. After two years of virtual conferences, CLSA is delighted to be back on the ground in India to explore the country’s wealth of investment opportunities. The three-day event examines the latest government policies, explores market sentiment and dynamics, and dives into India’s new finance and consumer tech opportunities.
Unrivalled in-person corporate access is a key differentiator for this year’s Forum, with investors able to directly connect with corporate representatives, industry leaders and award-winning CLSA analysts. We are also pleased to host a select number of unique pre- and post-Forum tours, providing a first-hand view of the country’s exciting investment possibilities.
Sonal Jain, Country Head at CLSA India, said: “India is increasingly grabbing the attention of the global market as MSCI and FTSE Indexes shift and investors align with India’s rising share of emerging markets economic activity and expanding domestic investor base. As the case for India gains momentum, we are pleased to host our 25th Annual CITIC CLSA India Forum in-person this year in Mumbai. We are excited to welcome delegates from around the world face-to-face, to access in-depth local knowledge and actionable investment insights.”
The Forum opens with CLSA Chief Equity Strategist Alex Redman and his analysis of the current equities cycle that favours emerging markets. He is followed by a stellar lineup of distinguished speakers exploring key trends from digital payments to the ecommerce advancements driving India’s economic growth. Day two of the Forum focuses on 5G and digitalisation, as industry experts and corporate speakers discuss the dynamics and improving sentiment of the tech sector. On day three, we close with a curated debate on emerging concerns within the Indian property sector and shed light on this potentially disruptive industry.
Indranil Sen Gupta, Economist and Head of Research at CLSA India, added: “India is a relative safe haven in a turbulent world. High domestic demand and sufficient foreign exchange reserves should help insulate the market from global uncertainty. Our sector tours will bring investors together to explore the trends likely to aid domestic growth, including supportive policies and schemes, rising infrastructure spending and the spillover effects of complex geopolitical developments.”
Shaun Cochran, Head of Research at CLSA, said: “CLSA is thrilled to invite clients to join us in person for our 25th Annual CITIC CLSA India Forum. This is our first face-to-face conference since the Covid pandemic began and an extraordinary opportunity to reconnect local and global investors with the exciting corporates delivering India’s extraordinary growth story. As Asia rediscovers the power of direct connection, CLSA is excited to play its part as a conduit and trusted partner. We look forward to seeing participants in India and capturing the insights that only on-the-ground presence can deliver.”
