CTBC Vietnam Equity Fund


We are pleased to announce that CTBC Investments, one of the leading asset management companies in Taiwan, has launched the CTBC Vietnam Equity Fund, with Dragon Capital engaged as an adviser.  The Fund is the first onshore vehicle for Taiwanese retail investors looking to invest in the Vietnamese equity market, and it has launched with an initial $160m commitment.  Dragon Capital will help CTBC build a portfolio of Vietnamese listed equities and provide the team in Taipei with ongoing stock recommendations and research.  The Fund will seek to capitalise on the increasing number of investment opportunities in Vietnam, particularly in those fast-growing sectors correlated to Vietnam’s economic drivers and unique demographic profile, such as domestic consumption, finance, and real estate.
