The importance of sound financial planning and investment management in helping an individual achieve financial goals cannot be over emphasised. And yet, studies have shown that individuals commit mistakes in choosing their personal investment portfolios. In 2015, the S&P’s Ratings Services Global Financial Literacy Survey found that close to 76% of Indian adults do not adequately understand key financial concepts – lower than the worldwide average of financial literacy.
In India, direct equity investments account for only 2% of household savings, which are dominated by other asset classes such as fixed deposits, gold and real estate. Surprisingly, the number has not changed significantly over the last two decades despite the economy going through structural transformation. Therefore, we developed EPIM to address the lack of financial and investing knowledge and educate the average person about financial markets and investment management.
EPIM offers a practical guide to the world of financial investments. The course empowers you with the diverse skills needed to intelligently manage your investment portfolio and be able to choose the right company, the right fund and the right investment strategy with confidence. The faculty, consisting of academicians and practitioners, have the capability to deliver high-quality and cutting-edge programme to the participants looking for knowledge and skill-sets as a solid foundation.
