Hywin Holdings, a leading independent wealth management service provider in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the first half of fiscal year 2023 ended December 31, 2022.


Ms. Wang Dian, Chief Executive Officer and Director of Hywin, commented, “We are encouraged by Hywin Wealth’s solid performance and strong financial and operational results in the first half of fiscal year 2023, which demonstrated its resilience in the face of macro uncertainties and softening capital markets, as well as COVID-19-related challenges in China through the end of 2022. Meanwhile, we continued to make strong progress on a number of fronts during this period. Hywin Wealth's total client base increased by 8.7% year-on-year to 146,418 as of the end of the first half of fiscal year 2023, a record high, and the repeat investment rate from existing clients remained high at 80.5%. As for Hywin Health, net revenues in the first half of fiscal year 2023 were RMB38.3 million. Leveraging the unique strengths of our dual-platform business model and our proactive responses to evolving customer demands, supported by our strategic product sourcing capabilities, differentiated services and advanced digital infrastructures, our efforts are bearing fruit. We are confident that we will unlock further growth potential as we continue to execute our strategies.”


Mr. Lawrence Lok, Chief Financial Officer of Hywin, stated, “This reporting period demonstrated resilient revenue growth, improved net income, strong cost control, and strong liquidity position. It is encouraging to see impressive top-line growth, with revenue increasing by 17.6% year-on-year to RMB1,036.0 million in the first half of FY2023, despite a slight decrease of 0.1% in overall operating margin to 9.9% after factoring in results from Hywin Health. Hywin Health comprises all of our health management-related strategic acquisitions completed last year. Hywin Health’s operating loss was RMB23.6 million in this period, as we were in the initial stage of integrating and transforming our health businesses. Excluding this, the operating margin of Hywin Wealth was 12.6%, up 2.6% compared to the same period of fiscal year 2022. We exhibited strong cost control capabilities and focused on profitability. Our disciplined execution also enabled us to balance between achieving business growth and managing macro risks. We will continue to improve operational efficiency while seeking new clients and new business opportunities going forward.”
