Saigon Asset Management hires chief investment officer

RELATED TOPICS​

Saigon Asset Management, the investment manager of two Vietnam focused funds, has appointed Hoang Nguyen as chief investment officer. 

Nguyen was previously an investment manager at Zurich Financial Services, overseeing CHF5bn of asset under management.

He was also a portfolio manager for UBS in Zurich, Luxembourg and New York, where he was responsible for a portfolio of over USD500m of private wealth clients with focus on European, North American, and Japanese markets.

“We’re delighted to have Hoang joining us in this vital role as he will help strengthen our investment capabilities and value creation process,” says Louis Nguyen, chairman and chief executive of SAM. “To have someone with his track record and accomplishments on the ground in Vietnam is certainly a rare occurrence, this is truly a win-win for our firm and investors.”

Along with having two decades of investment experience, Nguyen holds a Master Degree in Business Administration from the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland. He is currently a lecturer of the programme “Executive Master in Finance and Banking” at the Ho Chi Minh University of Finance and Banking in co-operation with the North-West University of Switzerland.

“The decision was simple after I spent significant time with the team. I understood the opportunities and chose to join a top fund manager in the emerging country of Vietnam,” says Nguyen. “Our challenges will be in our execution ability in sourcing great deal flow and having clear exit plans for each investment we make.”

SAM is in the process of launching highly differentiated investment funds focusing on equities and real estate in Vietnam.
