He is the elder son of billionaire Anil Ambani, and former Bollywood actress, Tina Ambani. His compact family also includes his 21 year old younger brother, Anshul Ambani.
Despite being a scion of the richest family in India, Anmol Ambani prefers to avoid the unnecessary glare of media. This is the reason why people don’t know much about him. As per his minimal public appearance, he seems to be a simple boy who loves his family.
Similar to his father, Jai Anmol Ambani too is fond of numbers. In spite being the student of science, he had an ardent interest in economics. It is a known fact that he was fond of reading about macroeconomics and policies.
From an early age, he started investing in the stock markets. Besides, while most students remain unaware about their career paths at the age of 18, Anmol worked as an intern with Reliance Mutual Fund for two months.

By suggesting his son to work in Reliance Capital, Anil Ambani aimed to teach him minutes of the business world and the working culture of Reliance companies. His father’s plan proved to be effective, when Jai Anmol Ambani tasted success in negotiating with Japanese major Nippon and convinced them to raise the stake in the Reliance Capital’s insurance division, that is, Reliance Nippon Life Insurance.
The stakes experienced a hike from 26 per cent to 49 per cent in Reliance Life Insurance. Whereas, in Reliance Capital Asset Management Company they augmented from 35 per cent to 49 per cent. On August 23, 2016, Anmol Ambani became an Additional Director at the Board of Reliance Capital.
