A Night with the King of Vietnam’s Stock Market at MIT

More than 50 guests have joined us in a talk with CEO Nguyen Duy Hung – Founder of Saigon Securities Inc.

The event “A Talk With CEO Nguyen Duy Hung – Stories Of The Pioneer” occurred on Wednesday, 24 August 2016 at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). It marked a successful opening for the Roundtable Discussion series. Mr. Hung spent his whole evening having an open and spot-on discussion with young Vietnamese people in Boston.

Our first guest Mr. Nguyen Duy Hung, owns SSI; the largest brokerage firm in Vietnam whose market capital is worth more than $500 million. It’s worth is three times greater than its closest rival. It is said that he is the King of Vietnam’s Stock Market, about which he simply commented that it meant nothing.

We had a chance to learn more about Mr. Hung’s interesting stories as well as his insightful thoughts about Vietnam’s and the other global economies. More than that, he spent most of the night answering the young audience’s concerns about their chance in Vietnam as either a potential employee or entrepreneur.

“No matter which style you choose, pick what you’re good at even though the environment might not favor it,” he answered a question addressing business atmosphere’s transparency in Vietnam.

We consider ourselves tremendously lucky when our first guest is not only one of the most successful Vietnamese businessmen, a self-made billionaire(!) but also has such a great personality.  Bold and witty at the same time.

The event ended on a high note full of optimistic and enthusiastic spirit, which then later turned into a networking session for all the guests.  Of course we didn’t forget to snap a photo with Mr. Nguyen Duy Hung.
