India’s leading stock exchange NSE has launched Nivesh India program across India to connect with investors. The program is expected to cover 12 cities in the first phase. Apart from spreading knowledge about financial instruments the program is also expected to improve the financial well-being of people through knowledge driven investments.
Mr U K Sinha, Chairman SEBI flagged off the event at NSE. While speaking on the occasion he said, “Such initiative can reach out to millions of people across the country”. He has also welcomed the EPFO investment in Indian stock market and said that other pension funds might also come in due course.
Participating in the program MsChitra Ramkrishna, MD & CEO, NSE said, “As part of NSE LIFE (Learning Initiatives for Financial Empowerment), our tie ups spread to 5 state boards, the CBSE board and 17 universities etc across India. Nivesh India is another step in that direction. We wish to cover multiple language platforms and wider geographies.” She further said that such initiatives help to resolve lot of doubts and questions that an ordinary person has about capital markets.
Mr M K Anand, MD & CEO, Times Network, said, “Media can play a critical role in bringing more people in the regulated market.” ET NOW is the media partner for the program.
