Conference Objectives!

Global Financial Crisis! A great lesson, indeed!!

Although financial markets contribute extensively to channelizing investments into different sectors and economic growth, sometimes, investors have faced small to massive losses as the markets have taken many unexpected turns due to inexplicable reasons. Six years have elapsed since the financial crisis struck the world; unfortunately, even today, we could strongly feel its ramifications across various industries and segments. Investment analysts make great forecasts about the market movements. However, many of them proved to be utterly incorrect causing significant losses to the investors. So, there is an urgent need to re-look at the accuracy of the tools and techniques being used in market forecasts. Another surprising phenomenon is that, barring a few, many economists could not forecast the onset of the ‘financial turmoil’, suggest precautionary and preventive measures in order to avoid financial crisis /unexpected havoc to the system which includes ‘Blackswans’. Nextly, mounting debt levels (high leverage) of banks and financial institutions have proved to be yet another serious issue being faced by them which contributed to the global economic crisis. So, the hard lessons one can learn is that the debt levels of companies, banks & financial institutions should be kept at prudent levels. Last but not the least, economists and investors strongly feel that complex financial products do not help to woo investors; nor would it help gaining their confidence.

Top Priority to Investor Confidence!

As emphasized earlier, what is more important is giving topmost priority to investor confidence. We need to think rationally and try to rope in investors to the markets and retain them as well with a reasonable return. To do this, all the concerned players that include, regulatory bodies, institutions, banks and the concerned government should take proactive steps to streamline the system. Once this is done, we can rest assured that we would regain the past glory and put the global economic and financial system on the growth trajectory. Although Asia has not suffered heavily on account of the economic crisis, the planners and regulators need to re-think whether the system has sufficient safeguards to protect the investors. Against this background, the upcoming conference is being organized in the most beautiful city of Dubai, United Arab Emirates in order to achieve the following objectives;

Conference Objectives:

a) Identify the major contributory factors that result in destabilizing the global financial system, more particularly, the Asian markets;

b) Undertaking focused research activities on important areas in global financial markets, regulatory environment, investor sentiments/confidence and Black-Swan events and models;

c) Provide an ideal platform for researchers, economists, bankers and practitioners to network and share their research and practical experiences to develop models and systems for addressing the global economic issues; and

d) Suggest practical and meaningful solutions to the above issues so that investors and markets bring prosperity to one and all.
