In the context of the globalization of capital flows, the wealth management industry is experiencing a trend towards internationalization. Asset allocation, being at the heart of wealth management, has gained even more prominence due to the complexity and volatility of the past year. This has led many investors and institutions to appreciate the importance of diversification and risk dispersion in their portfolios, with a subsequent increase in demand for globally allocated assets.
Amid the ongoing globalization of capital flows, the wealth management industry is witnessing a shift towards internationalization.

This dynamic has led many investors and institutions to value the importance of diversification and risk dispersion in their portfolios, consequently raising the demand for globally allocated assets.
Noah continues to prioritize its international development strategy, a commitment driven by customer demand. Following its dual primary listing in 2022, Noah is leveraging its strong foothold in the Hong Kong capital market to serve global clients from its China base, thus establishing a dual domestic-international growth cycle. As Noah deepens its international focus, it expects overseas revenues to account for more than half of the group's total within the next 3-5 years.
By the end of the fourth quarter of 2022, Noah Holdings had expanded its presence in Hong Kong and Taiwan in China, Silicon Valley, New York in the U.S., and Singapore. Since its listing on the NYSE, Noah has distributed RMB 948.9 billion of investment products to clients.
Looking ahead, Ms. Wang Jingbo, the Co-Founder, Chairwoman and CEO of Noah Holdings, emphasized the company's commitment to becoming a leading wealth management firm serving the global Chinese community. She acknowledged that while the goal offers vast growth opportunities, it also requires unwavering dedication and continued effort. She urged the company to maintain its focus and strive even further to achieve its ambitious targets.
On July 13, 2022, Noah went public on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, thus becoming China’s first independent wealth management institution dually listed in the Hong Kong Stock Exchange and the New York Stock Exchange.
