Old Mutual (OM) Asset Management (NYSE: OMAM) will be the largest IPO with $352 million in proceeds if it prices 22 million shares in the middle of its $15 to $17 range.

Old Mutual is a holding company that operates seven diversified, boutique asset management firms with a collective $214 billion of AUM (assets under management).

OM Asset Management prides itself on combining the entrepreneurial spirit, talent, and creativity with the resources and infrastructure of a larger firm. According to its S-1, “[The company] leverage[s] the expertise and resource within [its] organization to engage actively with...Affiliates and provide them with capabilities generally unavailable to specialist asset management firms.”

Each affiliate produces its own products. On average, senior management of the affiliates have approximately 24 years of industry-relevant service. In total, the affiliates maintain 88 model portfolios, 79 of which have beaten their respective benchmarks since inception through June 30 of this year.

One of OM Asset Management’s major risks on a forward-looking basis is losing an affiliate relationship. Its two largest partners -- Barrow, Hanley, Mewhinney & Straus and Acadian -- represent 78 percent of revenue.

Most of Old Mutual’s affiliates are RIAs with 94 percent of revenue being derived from management fees. Since 2011, the company has grown its management fee revenue stream by approximately six percent per year from $420 million to $499 million.

Old Mutual expects to price its 22 million share IPO on Thursday between $15 and $17. Underwriters for the offering are Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, Citigroup, and Credit Suisse.
