The Vietnam Technological and Commercial Joint Stock Bank (Techcombank) plans to raise its charter capital to VND14 trillion via selling shares to existing shareholders. 

According to the National Financial Supervisory Committee (NFSC), buoyant securities market and growing profits make it easier for domestic banks to increase capital. 

Financial-banking expert Nguyen Tri Hieu attributed big profits to credit growth, saying that credit grew by 15.9% in October and is expected to reach 18% this year. 

Better risk management and lesser spending for risk provision fund led to higher profits, he said. 

Hieu commented that banks in general have fairly high capital than the past years.
