Min Kupfer: why Vietnam says 'good morning' to unprecedented FDI

Attracting foreign direct investment (FDI) has been a lynchpin of Vietnam's recent growth story, with the 2015 figure representing an all-time high of £10.1 billion – up 17.4% on 2014, and the fifth-largest sum in Australasia.

This ongoing injection of capital, combined with the fact that the Vietnamese stock market delivered 4.2% local currency and 0.8% dollar-denominated returns in the year to 31 March versus widespread Asian losses, bodes for a healthy outlook, according to Min Kupfer, chairman of the Vietnam Holding Ltd Investment Trust.

In this video, Kupfer explains why the consumer growth story continues to be a key theme within the portfolio and how the trust is positioned to capitalise on the FDI influx.

Vietnam Holding Ltd's net asset value (NAV) grew 15.4% in the year to 31 March, versus share price performance of 14.9% and the VNAS Index USD-adjusted return of 0.8%.
