These banks were selected by Nhip Cau Dau Tu magazine and Thien Viet Securities Co., with consultation from many leading economic experts from Harvard Business School. The jury tracked companies' business results over three consecutive years, based on three growth metrics: revenue, return on equity (ROE) and return on share. The measurement results aim to objectively assess the corporate governance capacity, thereby finding and honouring the most effective listed companies.

Over the past years, many banks in the top eight have made sharp strategic transformations. They have also made endless efforts to improve and diversify products and services. That helped their average revenue grow over three years by more than 17 per cent. Three of them recorded outstanding growth - VIB, TPBank and MB - with respective rates of 28 per cent, 26 per cent and 19 per cent.

The top eight banks saw an average ROE of 22 per cent, higher than the industry average of 17 per cent, in which, VIB led the industry with an average of 29 per cent for 2019-21.
According to analysts, banks have been making sufficient investments in human resources, technology and operating platforms. They cited Vietcombank and VIB as good examples. The two banks have been active in promoting digital platforms, building effective operating models, and standardising innovative products and services to better serve customers.
VIB was also recognised as one of the top seven listed banks in Vietnam in 2022 by Forbes magazine, along with Vietcombank, ACB, MBB, Vietinbank, BIDV and TPBank.
The ranking decided by Forbes honoured listed firms for their outstanding business results in the industry, their leading positions in the market and their optimal returns for investors.
In addition to pioneering quality and focusing on developing core products that have brought sustainable profits, these banks have maintained a sustainable growth momentum for many years.
