VFS Executive Series
1. VinaCapital - Andy Ho, Chief Investment Officer; Khanh Nguyen, Deputy Managing Director (4/15/2019)
Vietnam Finance Society is pleased to host a luncheon featuring two senior executives from VinaCapital, Andy Ho, Chief Investment Officer, and Khanh Vu, Deputy Managing Director, on their trip to New York City. Special thanks to our Board member Chau Hoang for hosting the event at her office at Berkeley Research Group.
The luncheon was an interactive and lively discussion among participants about the investment landscape in Vietnam, as well as Andy and Khanh's investing experience in the country. Various topics were discussed including views on the market, industry dynamics, due diligence, deal sourcing, and working with local businesses. We were also pleased to learn about VinaCapital's commitment to hiring the best talents who want to go back and join Vietnam's growth story. Andy and Khanh are two prime examples - both have track records working for international corporations but eventually decided to move back to Vietnam and have very successful careers.
Vietnam Finance Society strives to be a premier platform to support Vietnamese professionals in the financial industry. Through our events, we hope to bring value and opportunities to our members and partners. VFS Executive Series with VinaCapital embraced the essence of VFS’s mission. We look forward to developing a long-term relationship with VinaCapital in the future.
