HÀ NỘI — Local securities companies are facing stiff competition from their foreign rivals, especially in the race for capital.

In recent years, foreign-invested securities companies have working fiercely to develop and boost capital growth.

Mirae Asset Việt Nam Securities Company (MASVN) is leading the market in capital growth. The company raised its charter capital from VNĐ 七00 billion (US$ 三0 million) to VNĐ 二 trillion in  二0 一 七 and to VNĐ 四. 三00 trillion by the middle of this year. MASVN is now ranked under only Saigon Securities (SSI) among securities firms in terms of charter capital.

The strength in capital has helped MASVN boost its operations. By the end of June, MASVN had spent VNĐ 一. 八 四 trillion on margin lending, up  二. 三 times compared to the same period last year.

KIS Việt Nam Securities Company (KIS) has increased its chartered capital to nearly VNĐ 一. 九 trillion, while Maybank Kim Eng Securities Limited has lifted its charter capital to VNĐ 一.0 五 trillion. Capital increase plans of KB Việt Nam and Yuanta Việt Nam have also been approved, to VNĐ 一. 六 八 trillion and  一 trillion respectively. Shinhan Việt Nam has raised its charter capital to VNĐ 八 一 二 billion.

MASVN receives strong support from its South Korea owner, Mirae Asset. The group is present in Australia, Brazil, Canada, mainland China, Colombia, Hong Kong, India, South Korea, Taiwan, the UK and the US, managing more than $ 一00 billion in assets globally.

Yuanta Việt Nam is aided by Yuanta Group, one of Taiwan’s leading financial-banking giants with total assets of over $ 一00 billion. Yuanta Group has expanded its operations across nine Asian countries.

According to Lê Minh Tâm, CEO of Yuanta Việt Nam, the company targets becoming one of the market’s largest brokerages by charter capital.

"Yuanta Việt Nam is also determined to step deeper into the Vietnamese stock market,"大众Tâm told online newspaper

Local confidence

Local securities companies are also striving to secure their firm foothold in the market, including SSI, HCM City Securities Corporation (HSC), Việt Capital Securities Joint Stock Company (VCSC), VNDirect Securities Joint Stock Company (VNDirect), FPT Securities Company (FPTS) and Bảo Việt Securities Company (BVSC).

According to Nguyễn Duy Linh, deputy director of SSI’s securities services, the Vietnamese brokerage market still has much room for development compared to other regions in the world, with a moderate trading value of US$ 二00- 二 五0 million per day.

“Việt Nam’s securities market is attracting attention from foreign investors,” Linh said. “But SSI isn’t worried about competition because healthy competition helps us improve the quality of our products and services, increase diversity and innovate.”

"SSI’s medium- and long-term strategy is to maintain its leading position in the securities market in Việt Nam and strive to expand internationally,"大众he said.

The company will apply new technological solutions, invest in human resources, improve working environment and control expenses.

According to Johan Nyvene, CEO of HSC, the company is promoting investment banking.

“This approach helped HSC achieve its business goals without too much emphasis on financial services,” he said. — VNS
