The Indian mutual fund is turning 36. As one of the fastest expanding, most competitive, and well-regulated investment sectors in the retail financial space, the sector is approaching Rs 40 trillion in assets under management. To be held at Mumbai, the Summit aims to lay the roadmap for the industry’s future and how better it can serve its investors. The Summit will raise critical discussions, dialogues, and debates featuring some of the industry's top executives, CEOs, and fund managers.

At the heart of the summit is the retail investor, and all discussions and dialogues planned have been crafted keeping the retail investor in mind. For instance, how can the mutual funds industry serve investors better as it becomes larger by the way. With size, come responsibilities; is the India MF industry equipped to handle its fiduciary responsibility? We plan to raise vital questions with some of industry’s top-most minds. The role of FinFluencers, as also newly set-up fund houses, will also be discussed at length.
