Dear all

You are cordially invited to the 3rd Girish Sant Memorial Annual Lecture in
Pune. The details are as follows:

Topic: Accountable Regulators - A Key Requirement for Good Governance &
Consumer Protection

Speaker: Ms. Sucheta Dalal

Date: 14 February 2015 (Saturday) - 6:15 p.m. to 8:15 p.m.

Venue: Dewang Mehta Auditorium, Bhageerath, Persistent Systems Ltd.,
Senapati Bapat Road, Pune

The talk will focus on issues related to financial sector regulation and
how it is not tuned to protect the interests of small investors. It will
draw from Ms. Dalal’s work with financial consumers, which shows how
numerous products are launched without enough information or on false
promises, leading to losses, stock manipulation and at times even insider
trading. The talk will also propose alternatives for making the regulators
more accountable and protecting the interests of the small investors.

Ms. Dalal is an acclaimed financial journalist, who has worked with several
of India’s leading newspapers, including the Times of India and Indian
Express groups at senior levels. She is widely known for her investigative
reporting on the 1992 securities scam, CR Bhansali scam and the exposé of
Enron. Presently she is Managing Editor at Moneylife - a personal finance
magazine that she co-founded in 2006 to serve the interests of consumers
and investors.
