The World Economic Forum, in its report ‘Outlook on the Global Agenda 2014’, has indicated “widening income disparities, persistent structural unemployment, diminishing confidence in economic policies, lack of values in leadership and expanding middle class in Asia” as some of the significant top ten trends facing the world. To address issues that emanate from these trends and to provide an impetus for economic growth and development, it is critical to ensure a fundamentally strong, functionally efficient and market driven financial sector.
Post the global financial crises, the financial landscape has witnessed significant changes; with policy makers and regulators having embarked on an inclusive reform agenda. There is an increased recognition that the high level of inter-connectedness of economies not only leaves the domestic economy uninsulated from the events elsewhere in the world but also of the need for a collaborative and supportive approach between economies. Consequently all the constituents in the globalized financial sector comprising of the financial institutions, financial markets, financial instruments and services have undergone reforms aimed at strengthening the financial system in the face of domestic and external crises. Several crucial aspects including prudential norms, recording and reporting financial information, supervision and control, financial inclusion and enhanced Corporate Governance have been the underlying themes of these reforms.
Against this backdrop, it is appropriate to discuss, deliberate and conduct research based studies capturing the emerging trends in the global financial landscape. The two day Conference aims to provide a platform for academics, researchers, policy makers, practitioners and representatives of the corporate sector to share their practical experiences and research findings resulting in a better understanding of the global financial sector- the challenges and opportunities. The Conference will see the participation from eminent speakers representing a broad cross section of regulators, bankers, corporates and service providers.
