For unicorn-rich India, the runway is long in the investment space. The pandemic pushed Banking and Financial Services Industry (BSFI) companies to expedite their digital transformation journeys and counter the blows of the lockdowns imposed to counter the wave of Covid-19. After a year and a half, there is a burgeoning growth of digital economy stocks in the country and the average Indian investor is spoilt for choice on where to park their surplus funds.
In today’s disruptive space where several forces are at play in the investment space – the Indian economy has braved demonetization, the Global Financial Crisis and, most recently, the pandemic lockdowns – what are the mega trends that are going to shape our economies in the future?
What does the road ahead look for this investor, who has traditionally exhibited a strong home bias? Should they make their foray into international markets and diversify their portfolios to include opportunities in emerging and developed markets?
For answers to many such questions and more, the much-awaited Morningstar Investment Conference is back this year with a stellar line-up of speakers where some of the most influential minds from the world of investing will come together to brainstorm innovative ideas that will shape the future of investing.
