If India were to become a $5 trillion economy in five years from now, will there be a change in the pecking order of India Inc, or will the usual suspects still continue to rule the roost?

A search for potential new business leaders when the size of the Indian economy doubles in a few years will top the agenda of this year’s ETMarkets Global Summit, where the who’s who of the financial world meet every year to brainstorm new ideas and draw investment strategies for the year ahead.

The flagship financial markets event of Economic Times brings together policy makers, regulators, thought leaders and market players under one umbrella for a daylong brainstorming over policies, ideas and market/economy trends. This year’s ETMGS will be held in Mumbai on November 22. Over the years, it has also become a much-sought-after platform for India-focused investors and money managers to share their wisdom gathered through the year.

Another key highlight of this year’s event will be former RBI Deputy Governor Viral Acharya’s no-holds-barred analysis of the soft money policies being followed by central banks globally as a key growth enabler. He will be joined in the discussion by four other eminent economists and experts: Ashima Goyal, Indranil Sengupta, Jamal Mecklai and Samiran Chakraborty.

Dissecting the opportunity for investors in a $5 trillion economy will be a panel of market veterans comprising Bharat Iyer of JP Morgan, Nilesh Shah of Kotak AMC, Radhika Rao of DBS Bank and Salil Pitale of Axis Capital.

Emerging markets guru Mark Mobius will be the keynote speaker this year, and he will put the age-old value investing strategies to a litmus test in the light of the changes witnessed in the new economy.

India's leading money manager S Naren will play ‘The Strategist’ this year, drawing up a plan to stay out of bubbles and still create alpha over an economic cycle through an investing principle he is most vocal about: asset allocation.

The usually reserved star fund manager, Prashant Jain, will be another key attraction, as ETMGS celebrates his 25 years as fund manager on Dalal Street. Jain promises to share his personal story and learnings of his stellar innings in a candid conversation with ETNOW’s Nikunj Dalmia.

ETMGS 2019 will also play host to Julius De Kempenaer, the Dutch inventor of technical indicator Relative Rotation Graphs, who promises to give away his mantra for a yet-to-be fully matured Indian market. Dalal Street’s prominent face Ambareesh Baliga will explore the fundamentals of market technicals with him in this session.

Meanwhile, India’s most popular market gauge NIFTY will come for a close scrutiny in a session where one of Dalal Street’s most erudite analysts, Saurabh Mukherjea, will examine how nifty the index has been in representing the dynamism that the Indian economy has been showing in recent years. Mukesh Agarwal of NSE Indices and Nippon India AMC’s Head of ETFs Vishal Jain will join him in this discussion.

The DHFL debt crisis broke out last year after DSP Mutual Fund sold some bonds prematurely. President Kalpen Parekh minces no words when he talks about the credit crisis. He promises to share his takeaway from the IL&FS crisis in a session, where Moody’s Alka Anbarasu plans to take a closer look at the ratings ecosystem and ICICI Prudential’s Nimesh Shah and Tata Capital’s Rajiv Shabharwal will share their survival strategies.

The state of India’s stockbroking industry in a new ecosystem dominated by discount broking and algo trading and the opportunity it presents amid rapid technology adoption will dominate another engrossing session, which will be addressed by Ashishkumar Chauhan of BSE, Nikhil Kamath of Zerodha, R Venkataraman of IIFL Securities, Shiv Sehgal of Edelweiss Global Investment Advisors and Uttam Bagri of BSE Brokers’ Forum.

The event will be held at Sahara Star, Mumbai.
