The Indian capital markets have a history of more than a century. India is one of the fastest growing wealth management markets in the world. The Indian equity market is expanding in terms of market capital, widening the field for brokerage firms, new products segments and the growth of derivatives trading. India is expected to be fourth largest private wealth market globally by 2028. This substantial growth in the market capitalization would be the key to drive the advancement of primary and secondary market, bond market, fund management as well as currency and commodity market.
