HCMC – After getting approval from the Ministry of Finance, Tasco JSC, which lists its HUT shares on the Hanoi Stock Exchange, has announced a plan to take over Groupama Vietnam General Insurance Company.
France’s insurer Groupama Assurances Mutuelles will transfer its entire stake in Groupama Vietnam to Tasco, the local media reported.
The move will mark the real estate developer’s entry into the insurance market, part of the firm’s restructuring plan in the 2022-2027 period. The company will thus be active in infrastructure, auto service, real estate, hospitality and insurance fields.
In 2022, Tasco targets VND11.4 trillion in revenue and VND250 billion in after-tax profit, increasing by 12-fold and five-fold year-on-year, respectively.
Groupama Vietnam, a unit of Groupama Assurances Mutuelles, has operated in Vietnam since 2001.
