Dragon Capital, one of the leading asset managers in Indochina, has been named Fund Manager of the year in the 2014 WealthBriefing Asia Awards.
The title followed the company’s recent success in Asian Investor magazine’s 2014 Performance Awards, where it was named Vietnam’s Fund House of the Year.
The two awards recognised Dragon Capital for its strong performance last year, which saw the firm’s flagship VEIL fund rise by 28.99 per cent, outperforming the VN Index by 3.45 per cent.
Dominic Scriven, CEO and founder of Dragon Capital, said: “It is a great honour for us to be named Fund Manager of the Year by WealthBriefing Asia and Fund House of the Year by Asian Investor. These awards take on an additional significance for us this year, as we are celebrating our 20th Anniversary and I am extremely proud of the progress we have made over the course of the past two decades.”
Last year also saw Dragon Capital launch the first actively managed Vietnam UCITS Fund, which will primarily invest in equities issued by Vietnamese companies whose shares are traded on the Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange.
