Knight Frank forecasted that the number of super-rich people in Vietnam would grow at the fastest rate in the world with a rise of 31% in the five years to come.
Knight Frank attributed the considerable increase in Vietnam’s extremely rich people to the country’s economic stability, higher living standards and more active global integration.
Forbes recently announced Ho Hung Anh, chairman of Techcombank with a net worth of USD1.7 billion and Nguyen Dang Quang, chairman of Masan group with USD1.3 billion as new billionaires.
Meanwhile, billionaire Pham Nhat Vuong, who is chairman of Vingroup and is the richest person in Vietnam, has become the first Vietnamese to be named among the top 200 richest people worldwide by Forbes.
