The VNR500 ranking has for 12 years been researched and published based on multiple criteria including enterprise revenues, total assets, and total labour force, as well as their corporate prestige.

In addition to outstanding business results in 2018, FE Credit received 10 further awards from prestigious organisations and broke the record for the most wins in consumer finance (CF) in the history of the Vietnamese banking industry. Highlighted awards included Consumer Finance Product of the Year, from The Asian Banker; and Asia’s Most Innovative Consumer Finance Brand, awarded by Global Brands magazine.
