About the Conference

Financial Markets have become integral to the survival, strength and sustainability of economic well-being of a nation. Financial Deepening and Innovation have become the precursors of a strong and viable economic structure. Digitisation of the financial system and its components has certainly led to widening its scope and accessibility and has also contributed to further challenges of risk and reliability. Over the past few years, the Indian financial ecosystem is witnessing a trial of perception and trust. Adding to the woes of this system, the global disruption in the garb of COVID-19 has brought all the banks, NBFCs and debt capital markets under pressure of sustenance vs. performance.

The financial landscape has reformed and broadened in terms of scope and prospects with the advent of Decentralised Finance (DeFi) which aims to dis-intermediate traditional financial institutions using blockchains and cryptocurrencies. Blockchains are used in DeFi to create ‘smart contracts’, which are automated, enforceable agreements that don’t need intermediaries such as banks. Nevertheless, DeFi is still nascent, freewheeling and largely unregulated. The pertinent question to ask is if such new financial novelties abide by or go against the principles of sustainable Finance? Is there a way to ensure that these self-driving banks empower individuals, entrepreneurs, and businesses with the tools they need to create a level-playing field and to participate in the value they create?

Stock markets, which are the life-lines of the financial and economic structure of any economy, are baffled by high volatilities of foreign investors; real estate upheavals and increasing gold demand trends, especially during pandemic. Indian stock market Sensex is reaching new heights. A deeper understanding of contemporary and historical events are hinting at a stock market bubble. With unchecked animal spirits and historic valuations, what are the key lessons for an investor?

Correspondingly, the nexus between finance, technology and sustainability has gained phenomenal thrust since the 2008 Global Financial Crisis (GFC) and has urged all the countries to re-work the traditionally deployed models by integrating the FinTech revolution to bridge the digital divide, and promote equitable and broad-based customer participation. The rapid and transformational changes brought on by FinTech need to be monitored and evaluated so that the regulators and society can keep up with the underlying technological and entrepreneurial flux.

The spectrum of Banking services and activities has widened and needs to be understood in terms of its business, risk and performance. Similarly, the monetary management has become increasingly challenging with the advent of virtual currencies and digital transformation. It has proven to be a rough path, with constantly evolving demands of the modern consumer and increasing disruption from rapidly emerging financial technologies, traditional banks are under more pressure than ever to adapt and innovate. Banks have to reinvent and veer away from their old approach; invest in these disruptive technologies along with drafting better dimensions and solutions to the age-old problems of growing NPAs; and adverse selection and moral hazard.

The UN System’s 2020 Financing for Sustainable Development Report considers mobilizing financing as a key player in implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Building an enabling business environment and inclusive financial landscape represent solid foundations supporting the financing strategies needed to achieve the SDGs.

Aforementioned developments and upcoming disruptive technologies have exacerbated the pre-existing fault lines and may have caused the emergence of new ones. As we look into the future, economies, financial institutions and businesses world over, do see a changing ecosystem. They need to rethink their crisis response to be able to turn any disruption to their advantage. Putting people and the planet back at the heart of our economic, financial and business models, thus, provides a unique prospect towards the post-pandemic reconstruction.
