Capital Markets

Our lawyers have been involved in many recent capital markets transactions in Vietnam. We have advised major international investment banks in a broad array of banking, finance and securities transactions, notably in connection with IPO, listing and the equitization of major State-owned enterprises.


Notably, our team was advising the Government of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam on a US$ 1 billion sovereign bond offering (to be listed on the Singapore Stock Exchange). This was the country’s first sovereign bond issuance since 2005.


Our team has also advised:

  • A foreign investment bank, in relation to a potential subscription of US$ denominated convertible bonds from a Vietnamese listed utility company
  • A leading European insurer, in relation to the purchase of a minority shareholding in the second largest insurance company listed on the Ho Chi Minh City stock exchange
  • A leading European bank in its acquisition as strategic investor of a minority stake in a major equitized commercial bank in Vietnam
  • A foreign investment bank, in relation to the secondary listing in Singapore of an equitized State-owned enterprise
  • PetroVietnam, in relation to a bond issuance on the New York Stock Exchange
