StoxPlus to organize an International Conference on Consumer Finance for Vietnam on 19 Oct 2017 in Hanoi

The Event will take place on 19th October 2017 at Hilton Hanoi Opera in Hanoi to address important themes and legal framework changes for a healthy and sustainable development of the Consumer Finance market.

Of which, total loan book by pure consumer finance players amounted to VND 56.3 trillion. With the annual growth rate of 48% over the last three years from 2014 to 2016, it is expected to increase sharply in 2017 and years to come.

Although market remains very potential because of low penetration and  significant unbanked population in Vietnam, various challenges and policy developments have not yet to be shared and discussed by all stakeholders including the regulators, consumer finance companies, banks, e-payment and e-commerce firms, investors and international organizations for a sustainable and healthy development of the sector in the future.

  • What is the manageable level of the sector growth for Vietnam from risk management perspective?
  • What are the social impacts on consumer/borrower’s protection and how CF companies would improve the underwriting process?
  • How should legal and policy framework governing the CF be developed to support the healthy development of the sector?
