PIE, the Platform for Investor Education is an initiative of the Centre for Capital Markets and Risk Management at the Indian Institute of Management-Bangalore. It is made possible by the generous support of the Investor Protection Fund of the National Stock Exchange and is designed with several unique features.
First, IIMB’s educational materials would be product-neutral, unlike many offered by the other financial services entities.
Second, the content would be developed by the experienced faculty who are cognizant of financial literacy efforts and reflective of the latest developments in financial markets.
Third, the materials will incorporate the latest in animation and data visualization technology, and will be made available on multiple platforms to actively engage different cohorts of potential investors.
Fourth, CCMRM aims to make this initiative much more than just large-scale online education, supplementing the videos with frequently updated web content, as well as by conducting periodic investor forums at different locations.
