He emphasised on the need for more research on consumer behaviour related to gold, as well as on product design, spot exchange and how banks could include Gold in their options.

Sahay, Professor of Marketing and International Business and Chairperson of IGPC; and Mr Brian M Lucey, Professor of International Finance and Commodities, Trinity College Dublin.
Earlier, Prof Sahay welcomed the gathering, describing the event as ''a forum that IGPC would
like to develop as the forum for research based insight on gold in India. That brings to gather
academia and industry.''
This was the institute's second conference on policy-relevant research on gold-related topics
and focused on a wide spectrum of topics that ranged from household motives to invest in the
precious metal to macroeconomic policy choices.
It served as a platform for meaningful interaction among academia, policy makers and other key stakeholders in the gold ecosystem.
