FIFTH INSTITUTE SEMINAR 2017-19
The fifth Institute Seminar of Institute of Management, Nirma University took place on 3rd November, 2017. The guest speaker was Mr. K. Sukumaran, Dean, National Institute of Securities Market. Mr. Sukumaran deliberated on the very contemporary subject of “Economic Reforms and Indian Capital Market.”
Throwing light on the economic conditions in India before 1991, he emphasized on the importance of foreign exchange reserves. He introduced the audience to surprising figures about financial inclusion and questioned why only 3% of household invest in stock market, even though the return is 48%. The reason for which, he said was the lack of stock market education. Bringing to attention, the problems of retail investors, such as Stock Market Volatility, Real Estate Boom and Intermediaries; he insisted on the use of technology to eliminate the issues.
Concluding the Seminar, Sir, insisted to follow the Golden Rules for Investment such as:
- Start with small amounts,
- Have realistic expectations,
- Don’t get emotional.
The session was very enlightening for the ‘management trainees’ of IMNU as they got insights into the scenario about economic reforms of the capital market in India.
