What to Expect at the Morningstar Mumbai India Investment Conference 2013 by Morningstar Investment Research

Find out what's in store for attendees at the third edition of the Morningstar Investment Conference at Mumbai.

Come October 2013, Morningstar India will host the third edition of its Morningstar Investment Conference at Mumbai. Modeled after the trend-setting conference held in the US, the India edition ranks among the most eagerly awaited events in the investing world. The conference has become a coveted rendezvous for investors, advisors, wealth managers, insurance and fund companies alike.

The Indian investor finds himself in unchartered territory. Uncertainty has become the order of the day with both equity and debt markets running into rough weather. If on one hand, the domestic economy seems overwhelmed by several headwinds, on the other, global factors seem to be having an increasingly telling impact on domestic markets. Investors are faced with a dilemma when it comes to investment ideas and portfolio construction. What should investors do? How must they position their portfolios to navigate the uncertainty and yet stay on course for the long-haul?

To address these areas and more, Morningstar has assembled a host of eminent speakers-both internal and external. A variety of topics ranging from how the macroeconomic environment will pan out, dynamic asset allocation, fundamental investing, gold's credentials as a 'safe-haven' to equity and fixed income investment ideas will be dealt with through presentations and panel discussions.

On day two of the conference, Morningstar will present its first-ever India advisor forum. The forum is meant exclusively for advisors, wealth managers and financial planners. Morningstar's research team will guide attendees through principles of asset allocation and fund research, from a portfolio construction perspective. In addition, attendees will have one-on-one access to Morningstar analysts and product experts.

The conference also provides an ideal platform to network with financial professionals. Connect with the who's who and thought leaders of the investment world in India's financial capital-Mumbai.

Date: 22-23 October 2013 Venue: Hotel The Lalit, Mumbai Registration is now open. Avail early bird discounts till 1st October 2013.
