“The sweeping pace of change due to the Covid-19 pandemic in the past one-and-half years, has made it clear that those who do not adapt are bound to fail," he said. “Despite all the challenges, India's economy has shown tremendous growth. The stock market is at a new peak and a record number of demat accounts have been opened. India's performance in the Olympics and Paralympics shows that the winds of change have been strong in the country.”

“More aware than ever people are aware that traditional methods of investing such as savings accounts and gold won’t be able to fulfil their goals with respect to capital creation and fulfilling their dreams. It is in the spirit of this change, we have launched our new Hindi offering, ET Now Swadesh, to contribute to the financial well-being of every citizen of the country," Anand further said.
