The Moneycontrol ‘Wealth Creator Awards’ is an acknowledgment of the contributions of professionals from the world of finance, who through their endeavours in generating and distributing wealth to market participants, have helped India attain economic stability.
Moneycontrol, India’s premier financial news and data platform, provides investors and business the information needed to take informed decisions, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said at the inaugural edition of the Moneycontrol Wealth Creator Awards.
In an address, the Finance Minister said even policymakers such as him use data from Moneycontrol to help take decisions.
On November 16, Moneycontrol hosted the first edition of the ‘Wealth Creator Awards’ on November 16 at the Taj Land’s End, Mumbai.
FM Jaitley further added that the quality of debate in India has suffered, particularly on economic issues. He added that debates should be based on facts and analysis, informed by data.
“Debate cannot be guided by slogans or populism. It should be based on hard facts, data analysis. Digital platforms like Moneycontrol are serving a great national purpose by making debate, discussion and policy formulation, meaningful,” he said.
The Finance Minister also commended Moneycontrol for simplifying the financial markets for a wide section of the populace, prodding more people towards acquiring an active stake in India’s growth story.
