Prestige Wealth (PWM), a Hong Kong-based asset manager, plans to raise $15 million at a $63 million market cap. As of provider of financial services to high net worth and ultra-high net worth individuals in Asia, the company received almost all of its revenue in FY21 from its operating subsidiary PAI, which acts as an investment advisor and fund manager. It also offers wealth services, which primarily consists of the distribution of insurance products and also provides referrals for trust lawyers, tax accounting, and education planning. Prestige Wealth is subject to high customer concentration risk, but continues to increase its client base through referrals.
