CAMS participates at the ICC’s Regional Mutual Fund Conclave (2016) at Bhubaneswar

Exploring growth avenues for the Mutual fund industryICC_Conclave_Bhu.png

Since the year 2012, concerted efforts had been taken to promote participation in Mutual funds from beyond the country’s top 15 cities. SEBI had introduced several measures to encourage investments and tap the potential of B15 as effective destinations for Mutual fund operations; four years later, it would appear that the regulator’s attempts have finally paid off; financial inclusion and awareness in India has risen to a substantial extent, with a steady rise in participation from investors based out of B15 cities.

CAMS as a professionally managed, institutionally owned, SEBI regulated entity has always been committed to the task of leveraging technology to add value to the operations of the BFSI sector. Also, it takes strategical efforts towards promoting investor awareness on the various services that it facilitates in the world of Mutual fund transactions – ranging from Aadhar-based eKYC to common OTM registrations.

Motivated to reach out to investors in the B15 regions and promote meaningful Mutual Fund Conclaves in these cities, CAMS had extended its association to a first-of-its-kind Regional Conclave organized by the Indian Chamber of Commerce (ICC), in the city of Bhubaneswar. The event was a forerunner of sorts with deference to ICC’s Flagship Annual 10th Mutual Fund Summit 2017, to be held at Kolkata.

The Bhubaneswar conference, where CAMS had consented to be the esteemed Technology Partner, was held on 23 September 2016, at Hotel New Marrion. The event brought together top policy makers and industry leaders, for facilitating meaningful exchanges and addressing strategic concerns of the Mutual Fund Industry.
