While inaugurating the company, Lim Young Jin said, “I am delighted to have the opportunity to be part of the vibrant financial market of Vietnam through Shinhan Finance. On top of the stable business that it already has, Shinhan Card, as the leading multi-finance company of Korea, as a long-term perspective, plans to expand its product portfolio from the current credit loan-focused offerings including consumer durable loans, auto loans, and credit cards by integrating various product know-hows. We also plan to provide new financial services and customer experiences through offering our Vietnamese customers the Total Financial Solution based on strong synergy from the leading foreign bank in Vietnam, Shinhan Bank Vietnam, Shinhan Securities, and Shinhan Life.”

Lim further added that, “With the launching of Shinhan Finance, we will continue to put our best efforts to fulfill our corporate responsibilities and to contribute to the development of Vietnam Financial Market.”
“Formerly known as Prudential Finance – Top 4 leading consumer finance company in Vietnam, over the past 11 years, we have provided personalised financial solutions to support hundreds of thousand Vietnamese customers,” said Atul Dixit, Shinhan Finance CEO.
“Good M&A practices indicate that evolving our name, rather than completely changing it, was the appropriate strategic move for us. While we wanted to accurately reflect our work in the new Brand, we also wanted to enable opportunities to market the organisation in pursuit of new opportunities for future growth and expansion. I would like to take this chance to thank our customers for giving us a wonderful opportunity to serve them over a decade and their continued support during the transition. It is our desire to keep them satisfied with our services and products. They are our inspiration in doing our very best. We are looking forward to serving you in the following years.”
