Hywin Holdings Announces Record Fourth Quarter Results
Hywin Holdings, a leading independent wealth management service provider in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter and full year of fiscal 2021 ended June 30, 2021.
Ms. Wang Dian, Chief Executive Officer and Director of Hywin, commented, “Our financial and operating results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2021 were record high. While we continued to grow our new client base, we also saw strong, recurring transaction demands from our existing users, as evident in our industry-leading 76.7% repeat investment rate from our existing clients. Meanwhile, we continued to diversify our product offerings and are seeing early success in several newer product categories, such as our privately-raised securities products. These efforts, combined with our continuing strategies to expand our geographic footprint, to enhance our technology, and to strengthen our research and advisory capabilities, will drive value creation for our clients and shareholders.”
Total net revenues in the quarter ended June 30, 2021 increased by 43.0% to RMB 502.31 million (US$ 77.78 million) from RMB 351.19 million in the same period of 2020.

As a result of the foregoing, income from operations in the quarter ended June 30, 2021 increased by 67.4% to RMB 78.85 million (US$ 12.21 million) from RMB 47.11 million in the same period of 2020.

Mr. Lawrence Lok, Chief Financial Officer of Hywin, stated, “During the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2021, we achieved impressive growth while maintaining cost discipline. Productivity per relationship manager increased, whereas our sales and marketing expenses and our general and administrative expenses both declined as a percentage of revenue. As a result, our net income for fiscal year 2021 increased by 95.6% from the prior fiscal year. Looking forward, we will continue our investment, especially in R&D and in training our talents to drive further productivity gains, as we carefully execute our growth strategy.”
