08:00am - 09:30am Registration and Networking

Venue: Pre-Function Area

09:30am - 09:40am Opening Address
9:40am - 10:00am Keynote
10:00am - 10:45am Panel Discussion: Liquidity crunch

Until recently, NBFCs were the darling of investors. But widespread concerns have risen suddenly. How deep is the rot in the NBFC space? How to stop it from becoming a contagion? Which areas are especially vulnerable? What risk measures need to be adopted to make sure the NBFC story doesn’t get derailed?

10:45am - 11:30am Panel Discussion: Housing finance - White spaces

Real estate has been in the midst of a long-drawn slowdown. But housing finance is still seen as an evergreen space. While some banks have been trying to hive off their mortgage finance businesses to unwind non-core assets, business houses as well as PE firms have been wide-eyed about the opportunity. There have been buyouts, a flurry of PE deals as also strategic M&As. What’s the next stage of opportunity in the business?

11:30am - 11:45am Networking over Tea/Coffee

Venue: Pre-Function Area

11:45am - 12:05pm Special address on Fintech
12:05pm - 12:50pm Panel Discussion: Insurance - Emerging picture

The insurance sector was seen as a playground of multinational firms with a short-term partnership with local companies till FDI norms were sorted. However, the sector has evolved very differently and in many cases it is the local partner that has taken over the reins. What’s more, even PE firms see this as an area where they can (jointly) build an exposure. How will the sector shape up in the next decade?

12:50pm - 02:00pm Networking Lunch

Venue: Pre-Function Area

02:00pm - 02:45pm Panel Discussion: Fintech - Where does the real scalable opportunity reside

Fintech has been the buzzword in the venture capital field for some time now. But the opportunity set is changing as scalable wallets failed to make a dent as payments banks and building a sustainable business outside of cashbacks became a challenge. A whole host of new businesses straddling borrower assessments, lending, insurance and more have emerged. What is the experience of the early winners and how does the outlook on the future of fintech looks like?

02:45pm - 03:30pm Panel Discussion: Private Credit

It is seen as an alternative to NBFCs as a model of investment and capturing the market vacated by banks. How does the economics of a credit fund work and how is the risk and reward balanced? What’s the experience of private credit funds in other markets and what lessons can be drawn while sketching it as a big asset class for the future?
