The Indian FMCG sector has been one of the fastest-growing sectors in recent years, attracting a significant amount of investment from domestic and international investors. This study aims to evaluate the risk-return profiles of top FMCG companies in the Indian stock market over the past five years, with a focus on identifying the best investment opportunities for investors to achieve high returns with low risk. Using exploratory and descriptive statistics, the study analyses the annual returns and risk of the NSE FMCG Index and two selected FMCG companies to examine the relationship between their returns and the annual returns of the NIFTY Index. The findings of the study will help investors make informed investment decisions and suggest the best-performing FMCG company in the Indian stock market.
