Tata Group - The Most Trusted Brand Among Investors

As the Indian markets surged over the last two years, one group provided investors with significant returns.

There are no second guesses here when we say it's the Tata Group.

Seven of its companies emerged as multibaggers and gave more than 100% return and in some cases more than 1,000% return in just one year.

The group is not only creating value with its products and services. It is also significantly contributing to its shareholder's portfolios.

In September 2021, Equitymaster conducted a poll consisting of 17 of the most popular corporate groups in India.

The Tata Group has emerged as an undisputed winner with 66.3% of the total votes, more than double the number of votes (31.8%) it received in the last poll.

The group's 153-year-old legacy is a testament to the fact that creating value is not only about the quality of the product or service but also about the quality of a firm's conduct, both internally and externally.
