Ambani family’s attention towards public-facing ventures
The Ambani family’s empire extends to technology and e-commerce. Apart from this, he is also the owner of the Mumbai Indians cricket team and started a football league in 2014.
Over time, the family’s attention shifted to public-facing ventures – even Mukesh’s wife, Nita, joined the board of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in 2019.
Rebecca Gooch, director of research at Campden Wealth, tells the Ambani family, “They have the economic horsepower to turn imagination into reality.” With this, he said, “Investing in the public space can help both the family and its company.”
