New York, Dec. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Global X ETFs, the New York-based provider of exchange-traded funds (ETFs), today announced the launch of the Global X MSCI Vietnam ETF (VNAM). VNAM is Global X’s latest addition to its International Access family, which offers sector exposure to China, the world’s second largest economy by GDP, along with single-country and regional strategies that target parts of Asia, Europe, South America and Africa.
Vietnam has experienced rapid and dynamic economic growth, amid its shift to a market economy. It was one of only a handful of countries to experience GDP growth in 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and experienced an average growth rate of 6.34% between 2000 and 2021.[i] A confluence of positive trends are putting wind into the sails of Vietnam’s economy, including Vietnam’s competitive manufacturing sector, ambitious digital economy development goals, and its strong position in global trade.
“Vietnam is a manufacturing powerhouse, particularly in the production of smartphones and computer parts. Additionally, Vietnam’s relatively young and tech-savvy population is spurring the takeoff of the country’s digital economy, while it’s position by the South China Sea has enabled its emergence as an important trade hub,” said Dillon Jaghory, Research Analyst at Global X. “Given that Vietnam’s economic reforms and growth have captured global attention, Global X is leveraging our deep history in International Access ETFs to bring investors efficient access to a basket of Vietnamese securities.”
With a total expense ratio of 0.50% and tracking the MSCI Vietnam IMI Select 25/50 Index, VNAM seeks to invest in securities across the broad Vietnam equity universe.

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. International investments may involve risk of capital loss from unfavorable fluctuation in currency values, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles, or from economic or political instability in other nations. Emerging markets involve heightened risks related to the same factors as well as increased volatility and lower trading volume. Securities focusing on a single country and narrowly focused investments may be subject to higher volatility. VNAM is non-diversified.
Shares of ETFs are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns.
