On 21st July 2014, the Investors Information Cell (IIC), a student body run by the students of MBA(FM), hosted the annual investor’s awareness camp, Finsquare 2014. Being an all-day event from 9am -5 pm, we were able to cover a wide range of topics to educate the average investors. These activities ranged from awareness in profitable investment avenues in the form of equities, real estate and insurance along with a detailed analysis of the Indian bond market.
This time in addition to this, a customized financial plan was prepared for each investor who visited our stall. A budget analysis was also conducted along with a basic overview of E-filling. Since the visitors of the camp comprised mostly students, even the working of a virtual portfolio was demonstrated.
In order to gauge the level of financial literacy on the campus, a financial survey was conducted with over 300 respondents. The camp was a huge success among students, faculty and corporates.
