Mumbai – 9 November 2023: CITIC CLSA will host the 26th CITIC CLSA India Forum in Mumbai from 29 November – 1 December 2023 (Wednesday – Friday). Building on the success of its recent Investors’ Forum in Hong Kong, the conference will bring greater attention to South Asia and explore the wealth of investment opportunities on the ground in India.
A powerful medium-term story that should propel its GDP into third place by 2030 and see it soar to US$40tn (in nominal US$ terms) in the next 30 years, makes India a safe haven amid global volatility as central banks around the world continue the fight against inflation. With international investors rushing to identify valuable growth opportunities in India, the Forum will leverage CITIC CLSA’s strong network to offer unrivalled corporate access and bring together over 100 leading companies for just under 500 one-on-one and group meetings with delegates.
Shaun Cochran, Head of Research at CLSA, said: “We are excited to once again set foot in India and connect corporate representatives, industry leaders and our award-winning analysts at the 26th CITIC CLSA India Forum. Having emerged as a land of opportunity and innovation, India is poised to play a pivotal role in the global financial arena. Our Forum will provide critical insights into the exciting investment opportunities that it offers.”
Over three days, seven experts and three of our acclaimed analysts will examine the latest government policies; provide checks on demand and capex dynamics; and share insights on new finance and consumer tech opportunities, as well as the political environment leading into the May 2024 general elections. They will also explore innovative business strategies, current industry trends and key takeaways from our 30th CITIC CLSA Investors’ Forum, which took place this past September in Hong Kong.
Sonal Jain, Country Head at CLSA India, said: “We are thrilled to witness the Indian equity market’s remarkable performance in 2023, which has defied global concerns and overcome domestic challenges, such as delayed monsoons and upcoming elections. The relative macroeconomic stability, along with controlled inflation and a stable currency, has played a positive role in India’s success. Our country’s consistent growth has been a significant advantage, attracting both local and foreign investors.
‘Make in India’ and recent government initiatives focused on self-reliance, which have both gained significant traction, have been particularly encouraging. The domestic equity market offers a diverse range of investable sectors, making it an attractive destination for foreign investors. Moreover, the increasing investor base and rising assets under management (AUM) of local funds demonstrates growing confidence in the market. Our upcoming Forum will delve into these themes and explore India’s stability and growth story. We invite investors to join us and discover the immense potential that India holds for their portfolios.”
