According to SSIAM, it won the "Best Investment Management Company" award as a result of its contributions to and efforts in developing the local market.

Total assets managed by SSIAM increased by 26 per cent, a value of VND3.365 trillion ($160.2 million). Meanwhile, in 2013, the company's revenue reached VND30 billion ($1.4 million), and its profits before tax amounted to VND15 billion ($700,000).

According to the spokesperson, this year shows a great deal of promise for SSIAM as it continues to gain recognition from trusted institutions, winning Best Asset Management Company by The Asset in May and three prestigious awards from Asia Asset Management magazine-Best Fund House, CEO of the Year, and CIO of the Year-in January.
