Vingroup’s consolidated turnover was VNĐ34 trillion for the whole of 2015, up 23 per cent compared with 2014, with after-tax profits of VNĐ1.419 trillion (US$63.3 million).

At present, the group has six ongoing projects – Vinhomes Gardenia in Cầu Diễn Ward in Hà Nội, with a total investment of VNĐ4.85 trillion and Vinhomes Riverside No. 2 in Long Biên District, with a total investment of VNĐ4.9 trillion.

In addition to a combination Metropolis project on Phạm Hùng Street in Từ Liêm District, Vinhomes Central Park project in Bình Thạnh District in HCM City, Vinhomes Hải Phòng in Hải Phòng City and Vinhomes Dragon Bay in Hạ Long City, with a total investment of some VNĐ4.8 trillion, VNĐ37.7 trillion, VNĐ4.9 trillion, and VNĐ12 trillion, respectively.
