  • Public Vietnam-Global Equity Fund (PVGEF or the Fund) invests at least 30% of its net asset value (NAV) in the Vietnam market and the balance globally.
  • As at 28 February 2023, 89.2% of PVGEF’s NAV was invested in equities while 10.8% of its NAV was invested in money market instruments. The Fund focused on sectors such as communications, financial, consumer and technology in the Vietnam, U.S., China, Korea and Taiwan markets.
  • From its commencement on 22 October 2019 up to 28 February 2023, the Fund registered a total return of +18.35%. This performance was led by strength in its selected holdings of Vietnam banking and U.S. technology stocks during the earlier part of the review period. The Fund’s selected holdings of mining stocks within the Australian market also benefitted from the rise in commodity prices. More recently, the Fund’s selected holdings of China / Hong Kong stocks benefitted from a rebound in the China / Hong Kong markets spurred by the re-opening of China’s economy.
  • Going forward, the Fund may look to be positioned in selected companies which stand to benefit from the post-pandemic recovery in economic activities.
