Vietnam: bonds

When the Viet Nam securities market started in 2000, government bonds were the only major products to be listed for trading on the market. Viet Nam's bond market has improved significantly as the Government continues to initiate reforms and pass enabling legislation. The Government's first international bond issuance in October 2005 was a resounding success. Local government bonds both in VND and USD were issued in large lots while streamlined procedures continue to ease corporate bond issuance.
Government bonds dominate the debt market, followed by municipal and then corporate bonds. Maturities vary from less than 1 year to 15 years. Convertible bonds have also been introduced. Bonds are typically purchased at initial auctions by insurance companies, banks, and individuals; and are held until maturity. A number of licensed securities companies are authorized to provide a full range of securities services including underwriting, brokerage, advisory, portfolio management, and trading.
