About FOFM


Future of Financial Markets is the annual summit conceptualized by the Financial Technologies Group, which is devoted to generate the best of ideas and thinking on how to bring markets closer to the people and play a useful role in their progress.

Given the rapid rise of Asia in the growth and development of financial markets, the theme of FOFM 2012 is ’The Ascent of Asia: Harnessing the Opportunities for India’. With a well-developed financial market infrastructure, India is poised to play an important role in the growing influence of Asian finance in global financial markets. The two-day event will deal with a number of issues on policy, regulation, and market development.
