The shares of companies in Reliance Group, led by the ‘other’ Ambani brother – Anil Ambani – have been performing exceptionally well. While the thunder is often stolen by the port industry behemoth Adani Group, given the bullish streak of its companies, Reliance Group is certainly flying low in the radar and performing well since the past few months.
For the uninitiated, the Anil Ambani led group boasts one of the largest family of shareholders in the country. Currently, the group enjoys the trust of 50 lakh retail shareholders cumulatively with 33 lakh shareholders in Reliance Power, 9 lakhs in Reliance infrastructure, and remaining 8 lakhs in Reliance capital.
