  19. 19. CONFERENCES ORGANISED BY NISMMORNINGSTAR INVESTMENT CONFERENCE 2012Taking Stock of Global EconomyIn US, Housing expansion and policy dependency along with deleveraging of housing loan will hold key to global economy. InEurope, there is concern of Sovereign crises. Also, In Europe one man’s debt is another man’s asset and all currencies tiedtogether. Debt is rising at alarming level in OECD nations. Emerging markets like India and China will contribute 2/3 of futuregrowth. China has a problem of credit bubbles as after 2008-09, productivity in China is driven by debt. India has a CurrentAccount and Fiscal Deficit problem. Also, for India, oil prices remain a huge concern. India needs long-term FDI andinvestment in the manufacturing sector.Panel: Global Investing Looking Beyond IndiaThere is a need to invest globally, as it will help in diversification. The route for that can be international fund offerings throughfeeder funds. Also, investing can be through ETF in global markets.Panel: Active or Passive? The debate in Indian contextThere is always some Alpha in India, so a primary strategy of passive investing wont work. Cost is a great concern for anactive fund. If passive funds grow rapidly, then new indices will be introduced to cover broader markets.Panel: Stock Markets 2013-Outlook and Factors to Watch ForFor investing, apply a Bottom-Up approach to relatively small sectors and Top-Down approach to relatively grown sectors.Look out for companies with sustainable businesses. Balance Sheet analysis is very important for second line of a companysvaluation.A Ringside View of Indian Fund IndustryThe fund industry needs to change its culture from sales driven to stewardship driven. There is a need to lower their overheadcost, so that funds can give better performance. Passive investing is good. The industry must move from a commission-based model to fee-based business.Panel: Stock Market-Where to InvestInformation is coming very fast which is deluging investment. A return of 18% CAGR can be expected from Indian StockMarkets in the long run. For the India growth story to be intact, fall in commodity prices is necessary.
