SHANGHAI, March 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Noah Holdings Limited (the "Company" or "Noah") (NYSE: NOAH and HKEX: 6686), a leading and pioneer wealth management service provider in China offering comprehensive one-stop advisory services on global investment and asset allocation primarily for high net worth investors, today informed its investors that it is aware of the closure of Silicon Valley Bank (the "SVB") and appointment of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation as receiver (collectively, the "SVB's Receivership").
Noah currently has cash and cash equivalents of less than US$1 million with the SVB, representing less than 0.2% of its total cash and cash equivalents, and therefore believes its exposure to any liquidity concern as a result of the SVB's Receivership is immaterial to its business operations or financial condition. In addition, Noah, under its asset management business, serves as the general partner or fund manager for certain investment funds with accounts at the SVB, and has taken necessary measures to protect against or minimize the potential impact of the SVB's Receivership on these funds. Noah will continue to monitor this situation and proactively fulfill its fiduciary duties to the limited partners and investors of the funds.
