Company Background

Commercial Bank for Foreign Trade of Vietnam (Vietcombank) was spun off from the State Bank of Vietnam and is one of Vietnam's four largest state-run commercial banks. It has been a major player in international trade payment settlement and is also boosting retail lending.

While the bank was listed on the Hochiminh Stock Exchange in 2009, the government still holds a sizable 77% stake. The remainder is held by foreign investors, including Japan's Mizuho Bank, which holds a 15% interest, the second largest. Market capitalization is about $3 billion.

CEO Nghiem Xuan Thanh previously was deputy CEO at Vietinbank, one of the four largest state-run commercial banks. Officials from Mizuho Bank also work at Vietcombank.

The bank is forging ties with Japan's regional lenders and has partnered with Fukui Bank and Toho Bank, a Fukushima Prefecture-based concern, with a view to enticing smaller Japanese companies to set up shop in Vietnam.

Vietcombank, which is highly profitable in the domestic market, is setting its sights on global markets. It aims to become one of the world's 300 largest banking institutions in terms of profitability and deposits by 2020.
