|VinaCapital and Maybank Kim Eng have successfully hosted Vietnam Corporate Day in London|
The event was attended by Tran Ngoc An, Vietnamese Ambassador to the United Kingdom, and about 100 institutional investors whose total assets under management exceeds $7 trillion. Senior leaders from the Ho Chi Minh City Stock Exchange and a select few of Vietnam’s listed companies also joined the event, including Coteccons, FPT Retail, HDBank, Phu Nhuan Jewelry, Eximbank, and Vietjet.
The investors listened to presentations from the Vietnamese companies, as well as from the Ho Chi Minh City Stock Exchange, VinaCapital, and Maybank Kim Eng.
In particular, the Ho Chi Minh City Stock Exchange provided a detailed overview of how the Vietnamese capital market has grown and what the next steps in its development will be, while VinaCapital discussed Vietnam’s macroeconomic landscape and where the fund sees opportunities in the market. Representatives from Maybank Kim Eng, meanwhile, provided a more detailed look at Vietnam’s stock markets and the catalysts driving continued growth.

Investors at the Corporate Day event noted that the Vietnamese stock market has become an attractive destination for global funds thanks to solid progress in the equitisation programme of state-owned enterprises and the government’s openness to foreign investment.
More direct discussions between companies and investors were arranged during the last part of the event.
