Vietnam Stock Market on the Way to Emerging Markets

Foreign investors can now have opportunities to increase up to 100 percent of voting shares in a public company in Vietnam when companies have been in progress to change their Foreign Ownership Limits (“FOL”) as allowed by current regulations. In addition to the FOL loosening, a number of other actions are now in the progress of implementation by our related Government agencies toward the promotion of Vietnam Stock Market to Emerging Markets (EM”) classification by MSCI.

How are Vietnamese Government agencies dealing with the progress? What are main constraints to loosen the FOL in Vietnamese public companies? And when can Vietnam Stock Market expected to be upgraded to EM status?

Addressing these concerns and as part of cooperation between Hochiminh Stock Exchange (“HOSE”) and StoxPlus, we have conducted a comprehensive review on FOL for 309 companies listed on HOSE and we have conducted a survey to obtain opinions and feedbacks from more than 200 representatives of foreign institutional investors including large asset management firms who haven’t got exposure into Vietnam and who are awaiting for the change.

Join the discussions and find out at the event this year’s Vietnam Annual International Investor Conference with the main topic: “Vietnam Stock Market on the Way to Emerging Markets”. The event is jointly organized by HOSE and StoxPlus.
