Under the MoU, NH-Amundi has the exclusive rights to develop products using the VN30-Index and the VN50-Index and is planning to do so in cooperation with SSIAM. In addition, the two companies have agreed to join hands to launch various funds that will invest in the Vietnamese market.

With this MoU, NH-Amundi will develop various products to provide South Korean investors with opportunities to invest in the market.”
