Prior to today’s listing, VCSC has held a private placement for investors, who altogether bought 10 per cent of the shares, to raise VND720 billion ($31.65 million) for the brokerage. At least 28 overseas funds have joined the placement, hailing from Singapore, Thailand, the US, Europe, and Japan, together with Vietnamese names, such as Dragon Capital, Vietnam Holding, and PXP.  

In 2016, VCSC reported VND894 billion ($39.3 million) in revenue and VND338 billion ($14.8 million) in post-tax profit. The brokerage aims to boost this revenue by 22 per cent in 2017, while profit is anticipated to grow by 30 per cent.
