Message from Managing Director & CEO - BSE Limited
India, over the past few years has made a notable mark in the Global Economy. The current budget has facilitated great opportunities for the economy and the future looks much brighter. With a strong vision to create a platform for genuine intellectual excitement and cutting-edge research as also to continue glorious tradition of the trendsetter - BSE Ltd., it is our pleasure to introduce PGP - Global Financial Markets wherein many of the world’s leading experts in their fields have joined hands with us.
Every market player in today’s international marketplace - investors, brokers, traders, employees of the banking or insurance industries, including compliance professionals - must not only know the fundamentals of products and markets they trade in, but also understand the economics that drive markets and the mathematics that explain it. If we look at the future, say 50 years hence,
even more fancy market models may be developed. Models would be even more accurate than what they are today. However, the incremental value addition from here to then in model creation industry for capital markets may still keep out a large delta that will continue to provide employment opportunities even 50 years from now.
Global financial markets work on three key principles: Transaction processing and price signaling, need for corporate governance and need for capital & new instruments. Currently, more than 50% Indians are below age 25. On the other hand, less than 1.5% of Indian population has invested in capital markets. This highlights the immense potential our financial markets hold for coming generations. As new markets open up internationally, the need to understand financial markets from a complex global perspective rises further.
