3rd India Fixed Income summit
We are delighted to announce the third edition of the India Fixed Income Summit (#IFIS2021). This year’s edition of the Summit will take a deep dive into topics that have generated significant interest in the minds of investors, policymakers, researchers and analysts connected with India’s fixed income markets.
The last year has seen significant developments encompassing the moderation of yields, expectations of rate hikes, democratization of structured finance, renewed efforts at market-making, opening of the government bond market, among other equally relevant topics. The fixed income markets have been anything but fixed and we have put together thoughtfully planned sessions to cover these and other topics.
We have a great list of speakers and moderators - with India and global expertise - to share data and perspective. Do join us to celebrate the action in India’s dynamic fixed income market.
