HCMC – Investment management firm VinaCapital has established a new open-ended investment fund targeting individual investors in Vietnam.

The VinaCapital Modern Economy Equity Fund (VINACAPITAL-VMEEF) focuses on long-term growth, primarily investing in equities with strong potential for sustained revenue and profit growth.

The investments are closely linked to the long-term economic drivers of Vietnam, including urbanization, the expanding middle class, and digitalization.

With a moderate to high risk profile, VINACAPITAL-VMEEF caters to investors seeking high potential returns, a medium to long-term investment horizon, and a tolerance for short-term market volatility.

Brook Taylor, CEO for Asset Management at VinaCapital, said that VINACAPITAL-VMEEF will capitalize on opportunities in Vietnam’s modern economy, given the country’s fast and stable growth, young population, macroeconomic stability, and favorable business conditions.

VINACAPITAL-VMEEF will invest in key sectors essential to Vietnam’s economic development, such as consumer goods, healthcare, financial services, technology, renewable energy, and infrastructure. These sectors are well-positioned to benefit from long-term trends like urbanization, digitization, and sustainability.
