The Sohn Conference Foundation announced the inaugural Sohn India Investment Conference, to be held on June 3, 2016 at Taj Land’s End in Mumbai, expanding the global footprint of the world-renowned conferences. The Sohn India Conference will convene top investors from India and around the world for a day of fresh market insights while raising critical funds to support cutting-edge pediatric cancer care in India.


“As home to the largest number of listed public equities in the world, India stood out as an ideal location to continue the Sohn Investment Conference’s international expansion,” said Doug Hirsch, Co-Chair of the Sohn Conference Foundation. “India’s considerable market potential and open-ended growth lends itself well to uncovering compelling investment ideas, and we look forward to welcoming the best and brightest investors onto the Sohn India stage to share their insights, all to benefit children with cancer in India.”
