The Vietnam Opportunity Fund, a US$850 million Alternative Investments Market-traded closed-end fund, is looking to raise an additional $200 million via a secondary share placement. The new issue closes on Nov. 14.
The fund invests across asset classes in the Vietnamese domestic economy. Typically, half of the fund’s portfolio is invested in equities with the remainder divided between real estate and private equity. Through September, the fund has returned 32%.
