“Over the past decade, IIFLWAM has evolved into one of the best wealth management franchises in India. It has become one of the largest alternate asset managers, with unique product offerings. With IIFL ONE, the company is looking to change the way wealth management is offered in India by focusing on recurring revenue rather than the traditional approach of transaction-based revenue. Our EPS estimates for FY24/FY25 largely remain unchanged. Importantly, the FY24 net flows target of sourcing INR300-400b in ARR assets will be a key monitorable. We retain our BUY rating with a TP of INR2,300 (premised on 25x Sep’24E EPS),” said Motilal Oswal after Q3 earnings of 360 ONE WAM.

“360 ONE WAM (erstwhile IIFL Wealth & Asset Management) registered 4%/16% QoQ/YoY PAT growth in Q3FY23 to Rs1.80bn, delivering >23% RoE, broadly in line with I-Sec estimates. ARR asset revenue grew strongly at 6% QoQ to Rs2.76bn (67% of total revenue vs 64% in Q2FY23) driven by 7% ARR AUM growth. However, YoY build up was lower at 12% despite 20% growth in ARR AUM due to moderation in retention rates (70bps/74bps in Q3FY23/Q3FY22). Transactional revenue was up 14% QoQ, driving 9% QoQ growth in operating revenue to Rs4.2bn. Nonetheless, forex MTM loss of Rs50mn dragged revenue growth (just flat QoQ). Cost grew 4% QoQ (down 16% YoY) mainly due to higher spends on technology and rebranding (rebranded itself to ‘360 ONE’ to better represent its business). It has proposed a share split of 1:1 and bonus issue of 1:1. Dividend payout is proposed to continue at ~70-80% of PAT. Maintain BUY with an unchanged target price of Rs2,217 (24x FY24E PAT). Key risks: i) lower net flows and retentions, ii) higher cost,” said ICICI Securities.
