Exclusive: Wealthy raises fresh capital from Alpha Wave


Wealth management platform Wealthy has raised Rs 45 crore ($5.4 million) in a new round led by Falcon Edge’s Alpha Wave Incubation Fund. This is the first round of investment for the Bengaluru-based company this year.

The board at Wealthy has passed a special resolution to issue 47,222 compulsory convertible preference shares at an issue price of Rs 9,556 each to raise Rs 45 crore or $5.4 million, its regulatory filing accessed from the Registrar of Companies (RoC) shows.

Alpha Wave led the round with Rs 20.7 crore while Savrola Lakshmi LLC put in Rs 16.38 crore. Good Capital and other individual investors cumulatively participated with Rs 7.92 crore.

According to the filings, Wealthy will use these proceeds for expansion and general working capital purposes.

As per startup data intelligence platform TheKredible’s estimates, the company has been valued at around Rs 278 crore or $33.5 million post-money. Wealthy has raised over $16 million to date including $7.5 million Series A funding led by Alpha Wave in early 2022.

It looks like an ongoing round and the company may raise more capital.

Founded in 2015, Wealthy offers investment management and tracking tools to retail investors. It also provides advisory and access to wealth management professionals. According to its website, the firm has facilitated over Rs 4,500 crore of investments through its marketplace.

Following the fresh proceeds, existing backer Alpha Wave remains the largest external stakeholder with 24.16% followed by Good Capital which holds 9.69%. Its co-founders Aditya Agarwal and Prashant Gupta jointly command 36.64% of the company.

Head to TheKredible for the complete shareholding pattern.

Wealthy bled profusely in FY23 as its losses blew 8X to Rs 24 crore while its revenue grew 57.2% to Rs 11.82 crore during the same period. The company is yet to disclose its financial numbers for FY24.

It competes with a clutch of wealthtech platforms including Stable Money, Deserv, Cube Wealth and many others.
