In this presentation he explained how India is going digital and transforming herself. He gave an idea of what’s happening in India in the world of digital technology, and why it is so special and so unique and why it has such a big impact on our businesses

He covered three fundamental trends and discussed with facts and figures on how India is becoming digital, which means it is becoming paperless and cashless; how is GST becoming business compliant and why is it so strategic for the economy, what’s the impact of the same and what is the role of data in India’s future as data becomes the most strategic asset of the 21st century. Today, huge battles are being fought all over the world for data. The big issue is the rise of the internet Giants who collect huge amounts of data and apply AI (Artificial Intelligence) to emulate human behaviour and making machines more intelligent to serve human kinds. So fundamentally what is India’s strategy in terms of data to be a powerful country in the age of big data ,AI and machine learning?

Seminar on Wealth Creation through Art - cum Dinner Meeting

Art is globally established as an alternate asset class for centuries, with many European families treating art as 'family silver' since generations. This trend is likely to catch up in India, with the wealth creation cycle only gaining momentum and an ever increasing interest in 'investments of passion'. Even after the top end Indian artists have grown tremendously in value over the last decade, the highest priced Indian painting (Rs 29 crore for a VS Gaitonde) is less than 1% of the value of the highest priced International painting (Rs 2,940 crore for a Leonardo da Vinci). All this clearly suggests that there is significant headroom for Indian art market to grow as we see more and more Indian collectors emerging as well as global collectors adding Indian art to their collections.

To get a better understanding of above subject, Ludhiana Management Association has invited Mr Rishiraj Singh Sethi, for a thoughtful and engaging interaction on ‘Wealth Creation through Art’. Rishiraj is a CA and CFA (US) who after working for Andersen / Ernst & Young ("EY") for 11 years, has spent the last decade in developing Aura Art as a leading Integrated Art House and expanding the culture of collecting art throughout India. He is now recognized as a thought leader in the space, speaking regularly at forums as well as contributing articles, besides authoring the recent publication "The science behind valuing art" alongwith EY.

The event details are as follows:

Speaker : Rishiraj Singh Sethi, Director, Aura Art Development Pvt Ltd, Mumbai
Subject : Wealth Creation through Art
Date : 8th March, 2018 (Thursday); Time : 7:30 p.m.
