Hana Finance Group Snaps Up 35% Blue Chip In BIDV Securities

One of the foremost financial services providers in South Korea, Hana Financial purportedly secured a 35% stake in BIDV securities. The agenda of the deal is to shape the business growth strategy and offer a solid base to expand the generation of returns.

BIDV Securities deals with investment banking and brokerage services. From the reports published, this investment valued at $113.8 million ranks Hana Financial the second-largest venture capitalist of BIDV Securities.

Beyond signing the deal, Hana Financial will also have the privilege to enjoy some of its unique preferences. These include; a favorable rate of 0.15% transaction value for all transactions and a margin interest rate discount of 1% per annum.

“Launched in 2011, BIDV Securities is an affiliate of the Bank for Investment and Development of Vietnam (BIDV), the only state-owned commercial bank that is designated by the Vietnamese State Securities Commission as the settlement bank for the Vietnamese stock market,” Yonhap News Agency highlighted in the report.

In Hana Financial view, they regard BIDV Securities as a company that has a positive lead in digital-driven securities and a guiding light in the near future. Having a good establishment in Southeast Asia, one of the fastest-growing economic regions, the company acquires a high chance to thrive.
