HÀ NỘI — The Hồ Chí Minh Stock Exchange (HoSE)’s pre-tax profits increased 19 per cent year-on-year in the first six months to VNĐ238 billion (US$10.3 million).
There was also a rise in its revenues, which climbed 17 per cent to VNĐ380 billion, according to the exchange’s newly released half-yearly statement.
Transaction charges accounted for 85 per cent of its revenues. The rest was revenue from trading software usage, other commercial operations and services and listing fees.

HoSE said it would develop the market towards larger size, promoting liquidity while improving the quality of listed businesses.
By the end of June, the bourse had 380 listed shares, three closed-end fund certificates, four ETF certificates, 76 guaranteed warrants and 43 listed bonds.
The total value of the exchange’s market capitalisation reached more than VNĐ2.87 quadrillion, equivalent to 39.81 per cent of Việt Nam’s 2019 GDP. — VNS
