11 JANUARY 2013, Grand Hyatt Mumbai, Mumbai, INDIA
Hosted with Indian Association of Investment Professionals and National Institute of Securities Markets
Following from the sell-out success of the 2012 India Investment Conference, where around 400 investment professionals gathered to be inspired and connected, we would like to invite you to join next year’s event in Mumbai on 11 January 2013.

Don’t miss this opportunity to meet leading international and local experts who will discuss investment opportunities in India and new investment strategies for these challenging times.

We are honoured to have Mr. U. K. Sinha, Chairman, Securities & Exchange Board of India (SEBI), as keynote speaker.

Professor Aswath Damodaran of New York University’s Stern School of Business will talk in-depth about “Investment Philosophies: Successful Investment Strategies and What it Takes to Make Them Work,” which covers:

  • Beliefs underlying a range of investment philosophies including indexing, passive, and active value investing, growth investing, technical analysis, market timing, arbitrage and more.
  • Evidence on whether the strategies underlying these philosophies actually produce results and what investors need to bring to the table to make each philosophy work, and how the most successful investors profit.
  • Insights to help manage the uncertainties, chaos, and confusion amid the new financial order.

Chief executive officers and chief investment officers of leading firms will also share their views on India’s investment outlook in 2013. Visit the website for the latest program agenda and speaker list.
