How to approach information in Vietnam stock market

As a frontier stock market, Vietnam has a huge potential to grow in the future; however, the stock market still has a lot of legal barriers, is restricted to capital flow, has unstandardized measurements, and so on. Due to this, foreigners often feel intimidated to invest in the Vietnamese stock market. This article recommends foreign investors different ways to approach this information in Vietnam.

1. Open a securities trading account at a leading company.

The reason is that, only top companies have sufficient resources to produce services to foreign investors. It’s hard to find an English-language report in a stock company with a market share outside the top 10. Even companies below the top 5 rarely publish analytical reports in English. When opening a securities account at a large company, communicating and asking for support from them will be much easier thanks to the professional quality and English proficiency. This clearly helps you learn about the Vietnamese stock market more effectively and accurately. Because local companies have a lot of advantages comparing to international financial institutions in understanding the Vietnamese market.

We recommend HSC and VCSC as two of the best securities companies for foreign investors because of their variety of reports and their professional services.
