I am happy to be communicating with all of you through ANMI website, which has over the years evolved as a very effective and important medium to showcase ANMI’s continuous efforts towards development of capital market and its intermediaries.
You are aware that ANMI is in continuous engagement with Government, SEBI, Exchanges over issues that concern the members. However in a globally integrated markets that keep reacting to developments both within and outside the country, it becomes necessary for bodies such as Anmi to respond quickly to the developments both favorable or unfavorable.
The internet and social media therefore has come to play an important role. Anmi hopes to use this as an effective tool to communicate with members and with the world at large.
Our website, carries an important application, where members can poll in their views on developments and issues that concern the industry. I hope this will be extensively used for interaction and sharing views.
ABCD(ANMI Bereau on Client Disputes) is another module where members can share PAN nos of clients that are not clean in their dealings. This module has been appreciated by members, regulators and exchange alike. I encourage members to use the same extensively as also populate with data, so that it can be of benefit to others.
Our various representations can be found on the website. It gives a healthy account of your association's work over last many years. Photograph gallery of several events and conventions also give a wonderful insight into the vibrant association that Anmi has evolved into.
Apart from engagement with various authorities as mentioned above, anmi has been also seriously working with international forums like Asia Securities Forum, International Council of Securities Association, Asian Chapter of international Federation for Investor Education and international Capital Market Association. Our interaction with them improves our understanding of challenges and opportunities in other geographies and showcasing India's achievements in securities markets.
Anmi believes that it is time that market intermediaries in India must now move towards self regulation, which will ensure better regulated industry and more efficient capital markets. We are therefore constructively engaging with all authorities on the matter.
Any association can be only as effective as participation of its members and therefore I request all of you to come forward and proactively participate in the various committees that have been formed to take up relevant issues for members. Your participation in various events and programs that are held across every region in the country is also invited.
This year yours truly has been designated to serve Anmi as it's President, and I am deeply humbled by the faith and confidence of members across industry. I look forward to your support and guidance, so as to be able to discharge my responsibilities effectively.
I place on record my deepest gratitude to all our co members who are presently serving on various committees or have in the past discharged various responsibilities in the association.
Together, we can make a difference and work towards a better capital market environment for industry and investors alike.
I invite all of you to be part of this endeavor.
With Best Wishes,
