“Given the crucial phase that we are in of India’s demographic dividend, the key now is that the new Government delivers on the aspirations of one of the largest and fastest growing youth populations in the world and catalyses a meaningful and long-term up-move in the economy’s GDP growth trajectory,” he said.
“In this backdrop, Indian equities are likely to be amongst the best-performing asset classes over the medium- term,” Thakkar added.
