He explained the reason for such a convention and that such events at academic institutions are an attempt by the academic community to bridge the divide between the industry practices and academic teachings. As with every financial market, the debt market is the basis for the discovery of risk-free interest rates. Therefore the Indian Financial Markets Convention 2015 began with the fixed income panel discussion. This discussion revolved around the structure of the market and how deep this market is and dispelled the doubts in the minds of students that G-sec and bond markets do encourage retail participation. Students were enlightened after the discussion. The equity market panel touched upon various aspects of equity markets and valuations in this market. It also touched upon some insights into how fund managers choose their stocks and also what qualities are expected of a student when they decide to choose equity research analyst as a career option. Foreign exchange market panel shed light upon how the FX market is important to a nation and its people. They too spoke about the trade deficit and current deficit and how the ‘Make in India’ campaign has the potential to make our country trade surplus and current account surplus too. The derivative market speech was informative to students through which the speaker, shed light upon the market structures; and drew comparison to how futures and different from options through various examples and cases.

Over all the event was successful considering that it was a maiden convention at KBS. All those who attended this Convention 2015 congratulated the organizers for an intellectually invigorating discussion.
