ASIA - BNP Paribas Asset Management is looking to set up partnerships in Vietnam in an effort to expand its emerging market offering to institutional investors.
BNPP AM head of new markets Max Diulius revealed the firm was looking to set up partnership arrangements in Vietnam to strengthen its offering in the emerging markets space.
He said the deal should go through relatively soon.
“The partnerships help us build our credibility and track record in the country from a local point of view,” Diulius said.
“Once the onshore ground work has been laid down, we can then move to make our global institutional clients aware of opportunities in the area,” he added.
Diulius said BNPP AM was looking to Eastern Europe and more specifically Russia for further opportunities.
“We never go into a new market alone and these partnerships help secure our success in the region,” Diulius concluded.
