Investment institution Lighthouse Canton hosted its conference on IDEAs (Investment, Disruptors, Economy & Alternatives). It brought together new-age entrepreneurs, UHNI and HNI investors, global industry experts, and stalwarts from the asset and wealth management industry. 

The inaugural event, centered around the theme ‘India’s Decade: Unlocking Growth at Global Crossroads’, was hosted in Delhi on 21st April 2023. The one-day conference featured thought-provoking panel discussions on various topics, including the global market outlook, India's public and private markets, global investment structures, and residency trends.

The Lighthouse Canton’s IDEAs conference series is a platform to exchange insights, consider new ways to innovate investments globally and serve as a catalyst to shape the future investment landscape. The company has claimed that conferences intend to bring to the forefront investment strategies that support and nurture disruptors and the companies leading that disruption. 

In his welcome address, Shilpi Chowdhary, Group Chief Executive Officer, Lighthouse Canton, said, “Investments are the catalysts for growth, and disruptors are the seeds of change. Together, they create a virtuous cycle that drives new economies and transforms societies. Our IDEAs conference is a significant step towards unlocking this powerful synergy, fostering the interplay between innovation, disruption, economic growth, and alternative investments. It’s a platform where industry veterans, innovators, and investors converge to exchange insights, ignite innovation, and shape the future of investment, further propelling growth.”

The conference commenced with a global macro panel titled ‘Goldilocks or Recession?’, featuring Sunil Garg, Global Head of Research & Investments at Lighthouse Canton, Neelkanth Mishra, Managing Director and Co-Head of Equity Strategy, Asia Pacific Head of India Securities Research at Credit Suisse, and Shubhada M. Rao, Founder of QuantEco Research. The panelists discussed the probable outcomes for major global economies, recent turmoil in the banking sector, and fault lines in the global economic environment. They also provided valuable insights on investor positioning in today’s uncertain and volatile climate.

"Amidst the looming growth and recessionary headwinds, investors must take a prudent and defensive stance in the equities market. In this environment, the healthcare and staples sector offers a shield against volatility, while a strategic allocation to gold provides a hedge against market uncertainty and as the dollar weakens. With emerging markets like India and China expected to outperform, the global financial sector also provides selective opportunities", said  Garg

In his closing remarks, Sumegh Bhatia, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer for India at Lighthouse Canton, added, “Our conference in India is the beginning of our quest to build a global community of visionary investors. India’s pivotal position in the world economy, poised for growth in the new decade, offers an ideal setting for this event. The IDEAs conference fosters the exploration of new ideas and technologies and we would like to thank our valued clients and partners for being here with us tonight and supporting us and being part of the first of this series. We intend to unite thought leaders, innovators, and investors to form a cohesive community, which is otherwise fragmented. We look forward to hosting a series of IDEAs conferences in Singapore, the UAE, and India in the future”
