VOF appoints Frostrow Capital as UK marketing and distribution partner
London, 6 November 2017 -- VinaCapital Vietnam Opportunity Fund (“VOF”), (LSE: VOF), the flagship fund of VinaCapital, today announced that it has appointed Frostrow Capital LLP to serve as its marketing and distribution partner in the UK. In this role, Frostrow Capital will provide a range of services that will enhance VOF’s engagement with current and potential investors, analysts, independent financial advisors, and central research teams, among other stakeholders.
Andy Ho, Chief Investment Officer of VinaCapital and Managing Director of VOF, said, “One of our key priorities over the past few years has been to expand our shareholder base and increase liquidity, and our migration to Guernsey and subsequent move to the LSE’s Main Market have certainly helped to that end. The appointment of Frostrow Capital is yet another step to help promote the fund, and make it accessible to more investors, and we look forward to a productive partnership.”
David Harris, Head of Distribution at Frostrow Capital, stated, “We are excited to partner with VOF, which we believe offers investors the most interesting way to participate in Vietnam’s exceptional growth prospects. With both listed and private equity investments, VOF is unique from other Vietnam-focused investment trusts – it is able to capitalise on the opportunities across multiple asset classes. Working with brokers Numis Securities and public relations consultancy Camarco, we are confident that we will be successful in helping get VOF’s message out to a wider audience and to broaden and diversify the shareholder base.”
