Plans

The Society has extensive plans to expand its activities in the immediate future. The prominent thrust areas are:-

TV SHOWS
The Society intends to tie up with leading TV channels and conduct regular TV programmes relating to investor education and investor activism.

DEVELOP LOCAL AREA NETWORKS
The Society has already initiated efforts to develop local area investor associations and coordinate their activities regionally, once they get established. The local investor associations and their members will act as a nodal point to impart investors’ education and handle investor grievances locally.

DEVELOP STUDY MATERIAL
The Society also intends to develop small booklets on investment environment, investment analysis, and portfolio management for wide circulation among small investors in both English and regional languages.

LAUNCHING A FINANCE JOURNAL
The Society shall also launch a finance journal shortly to promote research in the broader areas of Finance and Investment Management.

ORGANISING SEMINARS
Besides its annual seminars on Budget and tax-planning workshops, the Society intends to organise additional seminars on pertinent macro-economic and finance issues. These seminars will act as platforms for small investors to interact with subject experts and the seminar proceedings shall provide insights for policy initiatives by government regulatory bodies.

ESTABLISHING GLOBAL LIAISON
The Society aims to collaborate with similar societies and associations in other countries to share experiences and strengthen the investor activism process globally. The interaction will also provide new ideas about investor protection through exchanges among experts and by conducting joint research in areas of common interest.
