Strategy Note 01/07/2022 569
- New HOSE-index basket, including the VN30 index will be announced on 18 Jul 2022, which will come into effect on 01 Aug 2022.
- According to our estimates, VIB will be included into VN30 basket, while PNJ to be removed out of the index.
DCVFM VN30 ETF has the largest capital outflow in 1H22
In 1H22, capital outflow from DCVFM VN30 ETF ranks first among ETFs invested in Vietnam. According to data from Bloomberg, 1H22 capital outflow of DCVFM VN30 ETF reached VND1,450bn, larger than V.N.M ETF at VND717bn and FTSE ETF at VND566bn. We believe this come from the shifting of domestic ETFs capital flows from VN30 ETF to VNDiamond ETF, when this ETF achieved the largest inflow among ETFs in Vietnam with a value of VND5,571bn in 1H22.
Although VN30 Index outperformed VNIndex and other marketcap weighted indexes (VNMidcap index, VNSmallcap index) in 1H22 with a lower reduction, at -19.9% ytd, but as of strong market correction, ETFs based on marketcap weighted index become less attractive than ETFs based on typical indexes such as VNDiamond ETF. Therefore, as the market’s correction is still on, we believe that capital flow is shifting from VN30 ETFs to typical based indexes ETFs like VNDiamond, VNFinlead ETF will continue in 2H22.
