The report launch is organised by the Brevan Howard Centre for Financial Analysis at Imperial College Business School.
In pursuance of the discussions in the Sub Committee of the Financial Stability and Development Council (FSDC-SC) held on April 26, 2016 a committee was set up to look at various facets of household finance in India. The Committee chaired by Dr. Tarun Ramadorai, Professor of Financial Economics, Imperial College Business School, had representation from all the financial sector regulators, namely, Reserve Bank of India (RBI), Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI) and Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA). Highlighting the unique aspects of Indian households’ financial decision-making, the Committee has set out several recommendations on enabling better participation by Indian households in formal financial markets, including a Regulatory Sandbox for assessing the role of new financial technologies and products.
