10 big bankers on Vietnamese stock market

The shareholders of big listed banks - Sacombank, ACB and SHB – in 2015 had total stock assets worth VND3.55 trillion, an increase of VND275 billion compared with the previous year.

On the list of 100 Vietnamese stock millionaires released by VnExpress and its data partner VN Direct Securities Company, there were 10 bankers.

Tram Trong Ngan, the eldest son of Tram Be, one of the country’s most influential businessmen, continues to be the richest banker with 76 million Sacombank’s shares (STB) worth VND957 billion. 

Though the assets have decreased by VND28 billion in value compared with the last year, it is still large enough to keep its owner firm at the first position on the list of the richest bankers.

       Chair of ACB Tran Hung Huy

Though seeing his assets increasing hugely in 2015, chair of ACB Tran Hung Huy can only be put into the second position on the list. Huy holds the stock assets of VND561 billion, much higher than VND443 billion last year.

Being the youngest Vietnamese bank chair (he was born in 1978), Huy has been on the post for the last three years. He took office in 2012, when the bank was experiencing tough days. 

Huy is described as a young banker, but has good understanding about staff and good relations with founding members. 

Huy is from a famous family. His father Tran Mong Hung is one of the founding members of ACB. His ACB shares, plus the assets of his mother, Dang Thu Thuy, his elder sister Tran Dang Thu Thao and younger brother Tran Minh Hoang, are worth VND1.525 trillion, which is equal to 50 percent of the total assets of the above said 10 richest bankers. 

Tram Khai Hoa, born in 1988, the youngest son of Tram Be and younger brother of Tram Khai Ngan, now member of Sacombank’s board of directors, stayed at the third position of the list of richest banker, even though his stock assets have decreased by VND12 billion compared to the previous year.

No new name has been added to the 2015 list of the richest bankers. 
Do Quang Hien, chair of the Sai Gon – Ha Noi Bank (SHB), has fallen from the sixth grade to the 10th. This was attributed to the fall of SHB shares from VND8,000 in 2014 to VND6,300. This has made his stock assets decrease by VND36 billion.

Phan Huy Khang, CEO of Sacombank, could not stay at the fourth position, because he has been replaced by Tran Mong Hung.
