Advisory Board & Organizing Committee
With state of the art infrastructure and a fully operational
campus, SCMS-Pune is emerging as an internationally
recognized fully integrated management institute of
higher learning. The institute seeks to inculcate a spirit of
lifelong learning and aspires to strengthen the capabilities
of the students by integrating concepts with applications
and values.The institute strives to develop an innovative
academic environment through the synergy between
faculty, students, industry and technology. The institute
encourages constant interaction with the industry and
other leading management/ research institutes. The third
International Conference is one such endeavour.
Conference Overview
The World Economic Forum, in its report ‘Outlook on the
Global Agenda 2014’, has indicated “widening income
disparities, persistent structural unemployment, diminishing
confidence in economic policies, lack of values in leadership
and expanding middle class in Asia” as some of the significant
top ten trends facing the world. To address issues that
emanate from these trends and to provide an impetus for
economic growth and development, it is critical to ensure a
fundamentally strong, functionally efficient and market driven
financial sector.
Post the global financial crises, the financial landscape has
witnessed significant changes; with policy makers and
regulators having embarked on an inclusive reform agenda.
There is an increased recognition that the high level of
inter-connectedness of economies not only leaves the
domestic economy uninsulated from the events elsewhere in
the world but also of the need for a collaborative and
supportive approach between economies. Consequently all
the constituents in the globalized financial sector comprising
of the financial institutions, financial markets, financial
instruments and services have undergone reforms aimed at
strengthening the financial system in the face of domestic and
external crises. Several crucial aspects including prudential
norms, recording and reporting financial information,
supervision and control, financial inclusion and enhanced
Corporate Governance have been the underlying themes of
these reforms.
Against this backdrop, it is appropriate to discuss, deliberate
and conduct research based studies capturing the emerging
trends in the global financial landscape. The two day
Conference aims to provide a platform for academics,
researchers, policy makers, practitioners and representatives
of the corporate sector to share their practical experiences
and research findings resulting in a better understanding of
the global financial sector- the challenges and opportunities.
The Conference will see the participation from eminent
speakers representing a broad cross section of regulators,
bankers, corporates and service providers.
Objectives of the Conference
To discuss, analyze, share opinions and research based
findings so as to build consensus on a wide range of
issues pertaining to the global financial sector.
To highlight the need and impact of multi-lateral
co-operation between countries, institutions, investors,
practitioners and policy makers for attaining sustainable
financial growth.
To provide a forum for researchers, practitioners and all
stakeholders to discuss and arrive at new insights on key
aspects of financial regulation globally.
To provide an opportunity to researchers and
academicians to collaborate and engage in research
