Ashish Kehair, MD & CEO, Nuvama Group, said, “Nuvama is listing at the right time in our country, which is emerging as a fast-growing market as it races towards becoming one of the top 3 global economies in the world. India is expected to become the 4th largest private wealth market globally by 2028 according to publicly available reports on Wealth in India. With financial wealth and penetration doubling in the next 5-6 years, organized wealth management will see robust growth, quadrupling in size. We are well positioned to ride this growth and capture the opportunity that is present before us. We will expand our reach in geography, both within India and in select offshore markets.”
“We will continue to follow a hybrid model combining the best of technology and human relationships to drive efficiency and growth across the value chain for all segments.” Added Kehair.
Nikhil Srivastava, Partner and MD, Head of India Private Equity, PAG, said “We are very pleased with this listing as it marks a significant milestone in Nuvama’s remarkable journey of growth. As long-term investors in the Company we are firm believers in its continued success. We are looking forward to supporting Nuvama as it capitalizes on the tremendous opportunities in the Indian wealth management landscape.”
Nuvama is well positioned to capture the emerging opportunities in India’s fast-growing domestic wealth management space. Citi research estimates that professionally managed financial wealth makes up just 15% of overall wealth in India, compared to 75% in mature markets. Meanwhile, India is expected to continue to be one of the world’s fastest growing major economies, with GDP growth expected to reach 6-7% in 2024-25, compared to 2-3% for the rest of the world as per published estimates of World Bank & IMF.
To capitalize on these opportunities, Nuvama plans to expand its reach to more than 300 cities and grow the number of wealth managers to over 2,000 in the next five years. It also aims to scale up its alternative asset management business, extending these offerings to key offshore markets including the U.S., Middle East, Europe, and the rest of Asia. Finally, Nuvama plans to continue leveraging its industry-leading expertise in capital markets and advisory services to serve both institutional equities and investment banking clients.
For FY 2023, Nuvama has posted an operating PAT of INR 368 cr on revenue of INR 1,575 cr, achieving a two-year compound annual growth rate of 36% and 26% respectively:
