The top 3 ticker groups with the most animated trading are real estate, chemicals, and banking, while over 50 per cent of participants have posted profit throughout the contest.

Investor Dinh Ngoc Tieu My won two awards with the value of VND350 million ($15,220). She won the "But Pha" award of the finals and the "Thong Thai" award in the sixth month.

KBSV also awarded the "Ban Linh" prize (worth VND30 million or $1,300) and the "Thong Thai" prize (worth VND50 million or $2,170) to six other investors, including Tran Van Khuong, Pham Van Duy, Tran Ngoc Hue, Nguyen Xuan Nhung, Doan Bach Hao, and Van Dinh Hai in the monthly rounds.

At the awards ceremony, Nguyen Duc Hoan, CEO of KBSV said that even though the contest was held for the first time and at a very challenging time when the market had many fluctuations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, KBSV has received positive support with a large number of professional investors participating in the competition.

“This is a great and positive source of encouragement for KBSV to launch investment activities as well as products that bring benefits to customers,” Hoan noted.

Nguyen Hong Nhan – the ultimate champion of KB Challenge – shared that in addition to a suitable investment strategy, he also had luck on his side to win this award. He said the useful recommendations of KBSV brokers and the company's trading system were two key points enabling him to successfully trade securities in the contest as well as in enriching his personal investment experience.

Joining KB Challenge, in addition to expanding the playground for professional investors, KBSV wants to promote and support customers with trading channels via the KB-able website and mobile trading application M-able in order to optimise and simplify all steps when trading as well as gaining profit.
