More Liberalization Could Make India the Gem of the East

The Essential Conversation ·
Featuring Deepak Shenoy and Ash Bennington

India’s fast-growing population is the major force behind its rapidly developing economy. The middle class is expanding, and the country already features one of the highest equity-market participation rates in the world. Mass adoption of the internet supported by robust infrastructure has India ready-made for fintech services. Access to capital has never been easier. At this pivotal point, Deepak Shenoy, founder and CEO of Capitalmind, shares with Real Vision’s Ash Bennington insights on opportunity and risk on the Subcontinent over the coming decade. It’s a bright future, as Shenoy explains, so long as India’s leaders stay focused on efforts to liberalize the domestic economy, remain open to foreign investment, and continue to expand opportunity for participants across the social spectrum. These are the makings of the gem of the East. Recorded on May 18, 2022.
