VietNam Holding reports double-digit NAV increase in February

Vietnam Holding - VietNam Holding reports double-digit NAV increase in February

VietNam Holding Ltd (LON:VNH) has reported a double-digit increase in its net asset value (NAV) over February as the company said economic momentum and social stability in Vietnam had continued alongside the country’s economic recovery from the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

In a monthly update from investment manager Dynam Capital, the firm reported that its NAV had expanded 11.1% over February and 9.2% in the year-to-date.

The NAV for the fund currently stands at 250p per share, a 22% premium to its closing price of 205p on Wednesday.

Dynam said FPT Corp, the fund’s largest holding, had “grown impressively”, adding that the fund had also continued to benefit from overweight positions in several banks including Vietin Bank, VP Bank and MB Bank where it saw “high growth potential for 2021 and beyond”.

“Even with the week-long Tet holidays and a third wave of COVID-19 cases, Vietnam's economic momentum and social stability carried on during the month of February…The government's effective containment of the latest Coronavirus outbreak was widely praised. Together with the encouraging news of the earlier than expected arrival of the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccinations in Ho Chi Minh City, this has boosted confidence and helped Vietnam's benchmark equity index finish February with a [month-on-month] increase of 10.7%, its highest gain in nine months,” Dynam said in a statement.

“We are now one year on from when the World Health Organisation named COVID-19 a Global Pandemic: the world is still adjusting to life (and sadly death) as a result of the virus. 2021 has started strongly for Vietnam and the Fund's NAV and share price have touched all-time highs,” they added.

Shares in VietNam Holding were up 1.5% at 208p in early deals on Thursday.
