September 2017

Vietnam Wealth Management Forum 2017

When: September 7, 2017
Where: Park Hyatt Saigon, 2, Công Trường Lam Sơn, Bến Nghé, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

In the absence of many wealth management products and services that are common in other markets, transaction banking dominates. Only around 30 per cent or so of the population has a bank account. Banks are not allowed to sell mutual funds unless they have a securities licence and they are not allowed to offer dual-currency investments. The event is aimed at senior participants in retail banks, local asset management firms, insurance companies and other players interested in the development if wealth management in Vietnam. Speakers will provide insights from experts in overseas markets to understand wealth management, share best practices and review the components of successful businesses.
