Vietnam’s USD billionaire Pham Nhat Vuong, the boss of Vingroup, retains the top spot, while tycoon Doan Nguyen Duc of Hoang Anh Gia Lai Group slipped to the third position. The rankings this year saw some changes.

Vietnam’s stock market in 2016/2017 witnessed several waves of ups and downs as oil prices plummeted, China devalued the yuan in August and foreign investors withdrew capital from emerging markets after the Fed raised interest rates for the US dollar for the first time in 10 years.
