Anand Rathi Wealth has filed the draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) with the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) for its initial public offering (IPO). This would be the eighth company to file IPO papers in July.

Here are 10 key things to know about the mutual fund distributor:

Public Issue

The company is planning an IPO of up to 1.2 crore equity shares, which is a complete offer for sale (OFS) by existing shareholders.

The company is expected to raise Rs 1,000 crore through the public issue, according to sources.
