Ajit Menon, CEO, PGIM India Mutual Fund said that in terms of the year 2021, there have been many positive things for the economy and the market.

They have not only dumped huge cash, but have also promised that they will keep rates low in the near future. This will increase the demand for risky assets and will see the growth of global investors in emerging markets like India.
