In his opening address Jayesh Gandhi CFA, President IAIP and Senior Portfolio Manager Birla Sun Life AMC was thrilled with the record participation (550+) at the 6th India Investment Conference (IIC16) titled Strategies for an Emerging Environment. The asset management industry in India has seen record inflows over last year& half; indicating a shift from physical assets like gold and real estate to financial assets like mutual funds. As more savings flow into investment products it is not only beneficial to the investment industry but also to the economic growth and development of the country. The onus is now on the investment professionals to deliver& navigate clients through recent volatility. They need to set high standards of ethics and professionalism. IAIP, a local society of CFA Institute and a not-for-profit organization, has tried to play an important role by (a) organizing various programs & events directed at educating & apprising investors, professionals and regulators of global best practices, Putting Investors First, Statement of Investor Rights, GIPS standards, Asset Manager’s Code of Conduct etc. (b) organizing investment research challenge thereby developing & promoting good research report writing and presentation skills for the investment industry, (c) providing CFA Institute scholarships to needy & deserving candidates. All of the activities of IAIP are conducted on volunteering basis. Like in the past IIC16 has an excellent line of experts.
