As Vietnamese people are increasingly making overseas property investments, foreign developers from Europe, the US, and Asia are flocking to Vietnam to introduce their property products.

Vietnam is emerging as a potential market for foreign developers thanks to the country’s rising affluent class and expanding disposable income. With a decade of international trade activity, Vietnamese people have also accumulated experiences in negotiations, raising capital, and securing overseas investments. Therefore, more Vietnamese people are looking for opportunities to invest in property markets abroad.

Indeed, Vietnamese investors can enjoy several benefits in deals abroad such as stable returns across diversified property assets. Savvy investors can sustainably increase the added value of their assets as well as spread risks by putting their eggs in different baskets.

It is obvious that more and more Vietnamese are keen on foreign property products due to high liquidity, sustainable yields, and other special privileges like residency, investment opportunities, international education, and healthcare.

To capitalise on these opportunities, four reputable international property developers – Lendlease, Sansiri, Euroterra Capital, and Pafilia – will introduce their products to Vietnamese buyers at a conference held on October 13 at Park Hyatt Hotel, Ho Chi Minh City.

The conference will give an insight into the Golden Visa programme, which is one of the most desirable programmes at the moment to become European residents. Potential buyers can also explore many investment opportunities in neighbouring countries.

Participating in the conference, Australian developer Lendlease is renowned for constructing many landmark projects such as the Sydney Opera House, Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur, as well as restoring and renovating historic buildings such as London’s Tate Britain and National Theatre.

Headquartered in Sydney, Lendlease is operating in four regions: Australia, Europe, the Americas, and Asia. The company was listed on the Australian Securities Exchange in 1962.

In Asia, Lendlease has two big property projects namely TRX Quarter in Malaysia and Paya Lebar Quarter in Singapore. The company is also successful in the Japanese and Chinese markets.

Thailand's leading property developer Sansiri will also be present at the conference. Founded in 1984, Sansiri is one of Thailand’s oldest and largest real estate developers. The company has been listed on the Stock Exchange of Thailand since 1996. The company has built its reputation by developing luxury villas, apartments, and office buildings.

In August, Sansiri announced its investment to increase its shareholding in Standard International Holdings (SIH), the parent company of American hotel brand The Standard, from 37.26 to 59.02 per cent. The companies have aligned on an ambitious expansion plan to grow The Standard’s footprint to 25 open hotels in the next five years including four properties in Thailand as well as locations in Milan, Paris, Lisbon, Bordeaux, Mexico City, and Chicago.

Meanwhile, Euroterra Capital is the leader in the global real estate development and investment industry. The firm has successfully cemented their name as one of the most esteemed developers in Europe with approximately 3 million square feet of residential and commercial space across Europe, including London, Greece, and Bulgaria.
