VNHAM was established in 2006 by the Founder of VIETNAM HOLDING as an investment management company focused on Vietnamese equities. It maintains high quality staff in Ho Chi Minh City. Its strength lies in a combination of experienced local financial talent and seasoned global executives, directors and advisors. VNHAM’s mission is to generate high risk-adjusted returns by combining rigorous financial analysis with interactive sustainability research. This results in a comprehensive and skilled view of the universe of Vietnam equities from the perspective of both well selected local information and international sustainable investment standards.
VNHAM is strongly committed to Vietnam’s continued economic and social development. It places strong emphasis on quality corporate governance, a high standard of business ethics, and the further development of its own team of professionals and Vietnam’s business community. VNHAM applies a proprietary analytical approach which combines a disciplined value approach with inter-active environmental, corporate social responsibility and corporate governance (“ESG”) research. Its board members and senior advisors are actively engaged in this ESG program by actively and regularly engaging with top executives of VNH’s investee companies. This top-level engagement program is a key component to obtaining buy-in from the portfolio companies’ executives to the ESG principles. Since its origin, VNH also has a public engagement program through its annual VNH Forum events.
VNHAM is managed by a team of locally based professionals, a board of directors based in Vietnam, Europe and the US, and a group of senior advisors with both local and global experience.
