At the same time, he remained ahead of many other Indians, such as N Chandrasekaran of Tata Group and Anish Shah of Mahindra Group. Brand Finance has created this index. In this, those who work for business in a good and sustainable manner are recognised globally. It is also kept in mind which CEO is taking everyone along. Mukesh Ambani is now the top-ranked CEO in the category of ‘diversified’ groups.

What Score Did Ambani Get?

According to a report by news agency IANS, Mukesh Ambani was given a BGI score of 80.3 in the Brand Finance survey, slightly lower than the 81.6 of China-based Tencent’s Huateng Ma. The Brand Guardianship Index assesses the world’s CEOs based on how they sustainably create business value by balancing the needs of all stakeholders—employees, investors, and the broader society.

According to brand finance, the role of the brand guardian is to build brand and business value. CEOs who create partnerships to build a sustainable future are globally recognised. Brand finance follows a balanced scorecard of measures.

In the latest report, ‘Global 500 – 2024′, published by Brand Finance, Jio – a relatively new brand – was recognised as India’s strongest brand, ahead of several decade-old Indian brands like LIC and SBI. Jio also secured the top position among India’s strong brands in Brand Finance’s 2023 ranking.
