Here are some of the key merits of the Anand Rathi Wealth business model

1) Anand Rathi Wealth has tweaked its wealth management model to be technology savvy with a sharp omni-channel and digital focus.

2) For a wealth management company with AUM of over Rs.30,000 crore, the overall company valuation is just Rs.2,289 crore on indicative IPO upper band pricing.

3) The AUM and AUA does place Anand Rathi Wealth among the leading non-bank wealth advisors in India with substantial growing wealth franchise.

4) Anand Rathi Wealth has emerged among the top 3 mutual fund distributors and is likely to gain from the growth in the overall mutual fund AUM universe in India.

5) The company has solid financials in terms of revenue, AUM and assets growth, although FY2021 was an exception due to the lag effect of the pandemic.

6) The intent is to list the stock and get a better indicative valuation for the wealth franchise in the coming years

Even if you factor for the COVID impact in FY21, Anand Rathi Wealth has a challenge in keeping manpower costs in check. That has consistently put pressure on the net margins of Anand Rathi Wealth and clearly, there is a challenge to boost the profit per employee, especially when you cater to the neo wealth segment.

Anand Rathi Wealth is expected to have a listing market cap of Rs.2,289 crore assigning a P/E ratio 51X on FY21 earnings. Assuming that FY22 sees reversal to median profits of pre-COVID period, the price will look more reasonable at 38X.

Investment Perspective for Anand Rathi Wealth IPO

Here is what investors must consider before investing in the Anand Rathi Wealth IPO.

a) With over Rs.30,000 crore of AUM and AUA combined, it gives a good exposure to the fast growing wealth management franchise in India.

b) Wealth management is likely to benefit from the rapid growth in equity cult and the mutual fund cult in India, as is evident from AMFI and NSDL data.

c) A digitally driven wealth advisory model is likely to be value accretive in the sense that it would enable scaling up without too much additional costs.

d) The company has strong and loyal customer franchise, especially in mutual fund advisory, which has stood in good stead.

e) Valuations are reasonable if you look at the wealth management franchise as a share of market cap to wealth AUM/AUA.

The challenge for the company is to revive its pre-COVID growth without letting costs soar. This will remain a challenge and also a risk factor. The franchise is good but it comes with inherent risks for the IPO investor.
