Money9, promoted by TV9 Network, will host a day-long Financial Freedom Summit (FFS) in Mumbai on Wednesday.
FFS comes in the backdrop of the independent country-wide personal finance survey conducted by Money9 late last year.
The Financial Freedom Summit will be featured across the broadcast and digital assets of TV9 Network from 2 pm onwards.
While India has made significant strides in its financial inclusion agenda during the last decade, the Money9 Personal Finance Survey found out that the country was far away from achieving the true goal of financial freedom for 1.4 billion citizens of the country. The survey also highlighted several other gap areas in the inclusion ecosystem.
To bridge the gap, TV9 Financial Freedom Summit (FFS) has gathered top policy makers, BFSI leaders and regulators to deliberate through the day for a robust action plan.
Anupriya Patel, Union Minister of State for Commerce and Industry, will deliver the inaugural address. Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister, Devendra Fadnavis, will deliver the valedictory address.
The other esteemed speakers and panelists at the Summit include Nilesh Shah of Kotak MF, Radhika Gupta of Edelweiss AMC, and top domain experts like Harsh Roongta, Saugata Bhattacharya, Chief Economist Axis Bank, Hemant Rustagi, CEO Wiseinvest, among others.
Barun Das, MD and CEO, TV9 Network, said, "India has truly fast-tracked the financial freedom agenda during the last decade. But given the gigantic inequity that we started with, we have yet a long road to traverse. TV9 Financial Freedom Summit is a modest effort to help identify bottlenecks and recommend a mitigation plan."
"To my mind, while the supply side has been by and large established, the demand side is yet to be fully addressed to. Our endeavour at Money9 is to play a pivotal role to help bridge the gap," Barun added.
The day-long summit will feature sessions and theme keynotes to drive the financial inclusion agenda.
1. Reimagining financial inclusion
2. How to leverage financial inclusion to financial security
3. How to boost India’s savings
4, What is next for Mutual funds
