The fund managers follow a rigorous process in sourcing, analysing and making investments for VOF. The fund managers have extensive networks and knowledge of Vietnam that they leverage to identify investment opportunities. Once an investment opportunity has been identified, the fund managers conduct careful analysis of the company (including strategy, operations, financials, management and risks), and the sector in which it operates. The fund manager’s analysis also includes consultation with the Investment Committee and the investment manager’s Risk Management Committee to ensure that all risks are identified and properly considered. The analysis is presented to the VOF Investment Committee for review and approval; only those opportunities approved by the Investment Committee will be executed. After investing into a company, the fund managers continue to monitor the company to keep apprised of its operational and financial performance, and, where appropriate, to offer assistance to enhance its effectiveness. In some cases, the fund managers will serve as Board and Committee members for investee companies. Throughout the investment cycle, the fund managers actively seek exit opportunities that will allow VOF to meet or exceed target returns. VOF exits investments primarily by selling shares on the stock exchange, or by selling to other investors (i.e. trade sale).
