  1. Aman Singhania, CFA

Following global trends, the investment space in India has witnessed a sea change in the past seven years, with passive index-based investment beginning to challenge the dominance of an active fund investment style.

Since December 2007, assets under management (AUM) in index-based products globally have increased at a rate of 19.5% per year, reaching $8.6 trillion at the end of March 2021. This increase has re-established the fact that passive funds score over their active counterparts in providing investors with low-cost access to capital markets. In India, the ramp-up in AUM of exchange-traded funded (ETFs) over the past two fiscal years has been dramatic, as it witnessed fresh inflows of about Rs 1 lakh crore. Likewise, the fixed-income space in India is seeing changes with more transparency and the emergence of various research and analytics tools. For investment professionals, new and exciting career opportunities have opened up. In this webinar, Aman Singhania, head of index development and research at NSE Indices Ltd., helps us understand the index investing landscape in India, the opportunities it has to offer, and how CFA® charterholders and candidates can make a successful career in this space.
