The overwhelming victory of the business friendly Bharatiya Janata Party in the May 2014 general election is already being welcomed as the solution for what has proven to be a disappointing investment climate in India.  But is the newfound sense of optimism justified?  Our expert panel will examine how a shift to free market policy in India could impact global investors.

This program will:

  • Give you a more in-depth look at the specific investment vehicles in India and the methods of analyzing and investing in them
  • Promote a more useful and detailed discourse than the standard Indian narrative
  • Address the global challenge of applying increasingly data-driven financial analysis techniques to a market with often unreliable statistical coverage
  • Provide members and other conference attendees with an opportunity to network with top professionals in the India-focused investment sphere
