The Portfolio Manager’s Q&A

The last Investor Letter of the year is a new edition of Portfolio Manager’s Q&A. This time, the portfolio manager reflects on the fund’s modest returns, but also offers a hopeful perspective on why Vietnam still offers potential for favorable returns in the future.   

The debate covers Vietnam’s banks, inflation and the country’s currency, the dong. One crucial question revolves around Vinhomes. The company was one of PYN Elite’s key portfolio holdings a year ago, but this position has since been completely divested. The portfolio manager provides insights into how the funds have been reallocated since becoming homeless.
