The much awaited 9th edition of the IFA Galaxy Annual Knowledge Summit comes with the latest theme “IFA 2.0 – RE-FRESH.RE-LEARN.RE-BOOT” which is held on 1st and 2nd February 2019 at Hotel Green Park, Vadapalani, Chennai. The event attracted close to 500+ attendees that include pioneers, thought leaders and other stakeholders across the industry. This year’s event aims to equip IFAs with knowledge and provide a source of encouragement. IFAs, particularly from small cities and towns who don’t have access to industry experts, got an opportunity to network with leading CEOs, CIOs, and top distributors during the event.
The welcome address was delivered by Mr. VK Sudharsan President, IFA Galaxy followed by an inaugural address by Mr. Sankaran Naren, ED and CIO, ICICI Prudential Asset Management Company.
During the keynote address, by Ms. Radhika Gupta, CEO, Edelweiss Asset Management shared many provoking thoughts from her experience and a praiseworthy one being “Timeless advice is behavioral, not technical”, was received with huge applause from the audience.
CAMS was also one of the gold partners participated in IFA Galaxy event this year. The event attendees eagerly visited CAMS stall and learned about the new eKYC solution for distributors offered. CAMS personnel educated attendees about the recently launched eKYC solution and the benefits it offers.
Here are a few energized moments captured at CAMS stall of IFA Galaxy event.
The afternoon session of IFA Galaxy lined up an impressive array of eminent speakers who had handpicked on the carefully chosen topics which are very important for IFAs (Independent Financial Advisors) in the new paradigm.
Some interesting sessions of the day were
- Opportunity Amidst Challenges – Mr. Saugata Chatterjee, Co-Chief Business Officer, Reliance Nippon Asset Management Company
