HDFC AMC’s principal shareholders include Housing Development Finance Corporation Limited and Standard Life Investments Limited that own around 52.7 per cent and 26.9 per cent stake in the company, respectively, as of March 31, 2020, thus supporting the company with their own positive brand equity, goodwill and expertise.
