He started investing in stocks from an early age. He joined Reliance Mutual Fund in 2014. It was reported by a reputed media house that Anmol actively participated in the Rs. 12,000-crore acquisition of Jaypee Associates’ power assets, as Reliance Capital CEO Sam Ghosh mentored him for a bigger role in the Reliance Group. After 2 years of training at the company, he joined the Reliance Capital Board as an additional director on 23 August 2016. His father considered him lucky for the company as the shares of the company saw a 40 per cent surge in share price since his induction. Anil Ambani said,
Anmol has brought tremendous luck as the stock price rose by 40 per cent since his induction in the board and has added to the value creation for our shareholders.”

- Before joining the family business, Anmol took time to travel the world and meet people around the globe.
- In 2016, when he was admitted as an additional director in the Reliance Capital Board, a majority of institutional investors, which control about 27 per cent of Reliance Capital shares, voted against the resolution to appoint Anmol to the board.
- In an interview, Anmol’s mother, Tina Ambani, expressed that Anmol was taught the value of money since childhood. She recalled an incident when Anmol’s father noticed that every day, after returning from the pony riding lessons, he brought along a cheap toy. Later, his nanny confessed that she used to buy him a new toy daily because on his way back home he would cry for the toys. After that, both Tina and Anil made him understand that buying a new toy daily was “just not done” and that he needs to value the money. She said that she made him understand that once he grows up he would realise that it requires hard work to make money, and just because they had everything, it didn’t mean they shouldn’t value it.
- He is a teetotaler just like his grandfather.
- He was initially introduced to Khrisha Shah through his family. After spending some time together and knowing each other better, the couple decided to get married and got engaged in a small and intimate ceremony on Anmol’s 30th birthday.
- In contrast to the engagement ceremony, Anmol and Khrisha had a grand wedding on Sunday, 20 February 2022, which was a glamourous and glitzy event. Many big names like Amitabh Bachchan and his family, Nationalist Congress Party members Supriya Sule, Rima Jain, Pinky Reddy, etc., were present to bless the couple.
