DCG to host banking seminar
Rughwani says this is the first in the many initiatives that the DCG will be rolling out this year.

The Dubai Computer Group (DCG), has said it will host a Banking Finance Seminar on Sunday, 16th February, 2014 at the Panorama Grand Hotel in Dubai's Bur Dubai business district.

The event, which is being held in conjunction with Vianta Advisors JLT’s, founder Vikram Venkataraman, aims to address issues that DCG members seeking to raise bank finance may have.

According to the DCG, the seminar is the first of many initiatives it will be rolling out this year, which aim to help members on how they can manage and conduct their business professionally.

Shailendra Rughwani, president at DCG, said the association has decided to partner with Vianta Advisors JLT to bring to the members vital information on how they can secure bank finance. Rughwani said this initiative, is part of the broader plans that the DCG new office bearers promised when they assumed office earlier this year.

“We have decided to partner with Vikram, a seasoned banker who has been in Dubai for over 20 years. He is an expert in advising companies on how to raise bank finance and also helps arrange the same,” he said. "We would like to urge our members to come to this seminar and hear from an industry expert how they can secure bank finance for their businesses."

Rughwani said this initiative will help DCG members to get answers on some common fears and questions on obtaining bank finance. He reiterated that the association will this year do a lot in promoting events and activities to benefit all its members," he said.

The DCG is a local IT trade industry association, which comes under the umbrella of the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
