Financial services is the back-bone of any modern economy and was also the prime cause for the global economic slowdown in 2008. While banks dominate the sector in India and continue to be riddled with bad loans, growth in capital markets has created various other participants such as NBFCs, gold loans firms, micro-lenders and more.
The government and the RBI have been conservative in opening up the sector following the spread of the global risk contagion. However, in the last two years several initiatives have been taken with the grant of licence for new private banks, proposed virtual on-tap banking licence for small and payments banks besides various financial inclusion moves. The authorities have also supported digital payment modes to facilitate the new economy.
All these have thrown a huge opportunity for entrepreneurs looking to set up new businesses as well as fresh growth enhancers for established players. Indeed, several firms have attracted private funding as part of the growth outlook in the sector. But there are questions such as how the market would adjust to new business models and if traditional banking would play second fiddle in the new economy going forward.
To answer all of this and much more, VCCircle is launching it’s the 3rd edition of VCCircle Financial Services Investment Summit on August 26 at Four Seasons Hotel, Mumbai.
