Times Network and AMFI roll out Jan Nivesh campaign in Mumbai

The Times Network and the Association of Mutual Funds in India (AMFI) kicked off the highly talked about investor education campaign – Jan Nivesh in Mumbai on June 27, 2018. The initiative, which is aimed at creating awareness about the benefits of investing in mutual funds, is supposed to travel across 100 cities in India over the next six months. The nationwide campaign saw a phenomenon opening in Mumbai and simultaneously, citizens across cities like Mumbai, Baroda and Noida pledged to invest a day’s income, every month in mutual funds.

Industry experts present at the launch event educated and motivated people to start investing in growth-oriented products in the mutual fund space, and start moving beyond the traditional saving platforms, which seem secure but are not able to beat the inflation, giving very nominal returns. It is time people started exploring multiple wealth creation options that transcend beyond the public provident funds (PPF), fixed deposit, endowment policies, etc. to meet the ever-increasing financial needs of the challenging times that we are living in.

Carrying the message of ‘Aaj ki kamai, bhavishya mein kaam aai’, the campaign instilled in people a sense of security towards the mutual funds, which are by far seen as a precarious investment proposition. The august gathering saw the who’s who of the mutual funds industry. Mr Jayant Sinha - Hon'ble MoS for Civil Aviation, Mr G. Mahalingam - Whole Time Member, SEBI, Mr M.K. Anand - MD and CEO, Times Network, and Mr A. Balasubramanian - Chairman, AMFI graced the occasion and enlightened the audience with in-depth discussions and by answering multiple queries. A highly interactive and informative panel discussion was held on the topic, ‘Jan Nivesh: Creating wealth for all Indians’ wherein, industry experts spoke at length and cleared the doubts clouding the minds of the people.

The panellists included names such as Mr A. Vellayan - Executive Chairman of Murugappa Group, Mr Dinesh Khara - Managing Director, SBI, Mr Keki Mistry - Vice Chairman & CEO, Housing Development Finance Corporation (HDFC) and Mr S. Ramesh - Chief Financial Officer, Lupin. The discussion was moderated by Mr Nikunj Dalmia - Executive Editor - Financial Markets, ET NOW.
