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 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.
