In celebration of the Ho Chi Minh City Stock Exchange’s 15 year anniversary, the city will host a special investor conference covering investment opportunities and challenges in Vietnam’s securities market.


The event, jointly organised by StoxPlus, a leading financial and business information corporation in Vietnam, and the Ho Chi Minh City Stock Exchange (HOSE), will take place on July 31, 2015 at the Exchange Tower in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 1.

StoxPlus is set to introduce their fresh investor platform at the event – FiinPro® – the first ever comprehensive financial database in Vietnam. FiinPro® is a co-operative project between StoxPlus and QUICK Corp., a leading financial information provider based in Japan.

The conference will also feature speeches by high-profile experts, including HOSE board member Nguyen Thi Viet Ha who will speak about the factors driving capital flows into Vietnam. The conference will host two Japanese speakers – Koichi Takeuchi, senior strategist from Japan Securities Incorporated (JSI), who will analyse views from Japanese investors about Vietnam’s  stock market, and Yoko Ogimoto, senior consultant from Tokyo’s Nomura Research Institute, who will discuss investment opportunities from initial public offerings (IPOs) and divestments of Vietnamese state-owned enterprises (SOEs).

About 200 financial and investment professionals will participate in the event, including securities firms, fund managements, investment companies, insurance firms, and banks from Vietnam, Japan, Korea and Thailand.

Registration for the conference will be available until July 20, 2015.
