Prudential Vietnam has lately bolstered its charter capital to VND4.128 trillion ($183.47 million), as part of an attempt to reinforce its long-term commitment and investment to Vietnam.
Apart from strengthening its financial capacity, the additional capital will provide Prudential Vietnam with a solid foundation to further boost its investment in enhancing its product offerings and services based on advanced technology, as well as expanding its reach to millions of Vietnamese families across the country.
These efforts are expected to generate further growth momentum in its business and help support the on-going development of the life insurance sector in Vietnam.
