This trend is in-line with the performance of India’s benchmark Nifty compared to its global peers. The Nifty has risen 12 per cent during the year, while most of the developed and developing markets have fared much better.

China’s alcohol manufacturer Wuliangye Yibin is the best performer in the Bloomberg 500 list with 161 per cent returns since January this calendar year. Shopify, Blackstone and Apple are among the other top performers in the list, data showed.
