SHANGHAI, March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Noah Holdings Limited ("Noah" or the
"Company") (NYSE: NOAH), a leading wealth management service provider focusing
on distributing wealth management products to the high net worth population in
China, today announced that three Noah entities successfully completed the
registration of private security investment, equity investment and venture
capital investment business with Asset Management Association of China
("AMAC") and each received a private investment fund manager registration
certificate from AMAC.

The three entities are Gopher Asset Management Co., Ltd., Tianjin Gopher Asset
Management Co., Ltd. and Gopher Nobel (Shanghai) Asset Management Co., Ltd.
Such registration with AMAC allows these Noah entities to independently
conduct private security investment businesses without having to involve third
parties. Noah operates its comprehensive asset management platform mainly
through the three entities to provide asset allocation and management services
to high net worth individuals, families and institutional clients. As of
December 31, 2013, total accumulated asset under management was RMB31 billion.

Relevant PRC laws require independent fund managers to complete the
registration with AMAC before they can independently launch private securities
investment fund. These three Noah entities are among the first 50 PRC entities
to receive the private investment fund manager registration certificate from
AMAC.

Ms. Jingbo Wang, Co-founder, Chairwoman of the Board of Directors and Chief
Executive Officer, commented, "We are very pleased that three Noah entities
were included in the first 50 PRC entities to receive the private investment
fund manager registration certificate from AMAC. This allows us to further
develop our asset management business and enhance our core competitive
advantage." Ms. Wang continued, "We expect the private investment industry to
enter into a rapid growing stage and we believe we are well-positioned to take
advantage of this market opportunity."
