Vietnam Growth Fund Limited, VGF

Dragon Capital’s dynamic second fund is closed-ended, Cayman Islands incorporated, and listed on the Irish Stock Exchange. Launched in 2004, the fund is one of the largest dedicated offshore listed vehicle invested in Vietnam. The Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation from Vietnam’s listed and pre-IPO equities as well as offshore listed securities which derive a significant portion of their earnings from Vietnam. Within a narrower, more liquid universe, investments are screened for strong growth, value, and good corporate governance. Performance is evaluated on a rolling two year basis versus the VN Index.
