Top 10 wealth creators of India

Not only is the quantum of its contribution the highest but, more importantly, it is the most diversified group and also has the largest shareholder base (85 lakh) thus providing a larger slice of the pie to public shareholders,” said RippleWave Equity Advisors partner Mehul Savla. Here are the top 10 wealth creators in India:

As the stock market booms, the top conglomerates in the country have made money while also creating wealth for their respective shareholders. These companies have bounced back after the major Covid19 slump in 2020 when the lockdown was put in place. Now that the economy has found its place once again, major Indian companies are benefiting from the overall progress. Infosys and Bajaj Finance have a creditable performance of being among the top 10, both in terms of fastest and biggest wealth creators. HDFC, Kotak Mahindra Bank, ITC, Asian Paints, Nestle Bajaj Finance and L&T were among the other biggest wealth creators. “The highest wealth creation has come from the Tata Group and rightly so. Not only is the quantum of its contribution the highest but, more importantly, it is the most diversified group and also has the largest shareholder base (85 lakh) thus providing a larger slice of the pie to public shareholders,” said RippleWave Equity Advisors partner Mehul Savla.
