How vị you view the development of Vietnam’s banks at this time?

We’ve observed positive changes in Vietnam’s banking industry in recent years. Both local và foreign banks have been actively developing business và servicing clients. The participation of foreign banks along with their local counterparts have promoted healthy competition & have offered customers more benefits while contributing to the development of the banking sector. Banks have been trying to lớn better understand their customers’ needs, upgrade & diversify their products & services, và improve procedures to serve their customer segment of choice.

Stepping into 2018, Vietnam continues lớn offer a favorable environment for businesses in general, as well as robust economic growth, strong FDI inflow, a rising middle class, & faster reforms. The banking industry had a good year in 2017 & will benefit from this favorable macro environment in 2018, especially in blooming areas like consumers, manufacturing, infrastructure & M&A. Digital trends are also changing the economy và banking industry. This will help develop a cashless society in the future where the smartphone plays the role as a catalyst for mobile payment for retail transactions, online payment for tax, fee, biometrics recognition for banking trương mục access & the birth of many fintech start-ups. Collaboration between banks & fintech start-ups is also a positive trend that is improving the customer experience. Banks have a large customer base, a stable infrastructure, assets and regulatory know-how. Start-ups provide out-of-the-box thinking, technical expertise, and the agility to be able to lớn quickly adapt to change.

Many foreign investors see that there is a lack of occupational skills và knowledge among banking human resources in Vietnam, especially at senior levels. Vì you agree? Why?

Since the banking sector has been growing very fast, the supply of human resources isn’t able to catch up with the demands of the banking sector. Because there’s still a gap between what universities produce and what businesses need, banks often spend a lot of time and money training and retraining fresh graduates to ensure they have the sufficient knowledge they need.

On the other hand, Vietnam’s banking industry has developed strongly in recent years, resulting in the upgrade and up-skill of its human resource pool, both in quantity & quality. We’ve seen many Vietnamese take up senior positions in local & international banks. But it’s still considered a relatively young industry in the region and especially on a global scale. That’s why it’s fair lớn assume that there will be roles that require a level of experience both in terms of breadth & depth. Naturally, this results in the selection of the best qualified candidate who, most often, are expatriates who have longer banking career experience và international exposure.

Investing in a market like Vietnam requires a long-term vision & a strong wish to develop together with the country. At HSBC, our strategy is lớn invest in our people và talents. As a locally incorporated international bank, we benefit from having a diverse phối of human resource capabilities, and a competitive edge that allows us to bring in international resources lớn supplement, train or nội dung best practices and expertise with our local colleagues & vice versa.

Could you please nói qua with us your bank’s key strategies in developing human resources, especially at senior levels? What are your specific strategies in retaining existing talent?

Recently, some banks have signed giao dịch with local universities to find high-quality human resources. What do you think about that trend, especially at senior levels?

Directly tapping into the source of upcoming talent from the universities is a positive movement. It exhibits the industry’s commitment in utilizing the local workforce. However, it’s important to note that senior position recruitment doesn’t happen at the campus level.

At HSBC, we partner with universities in Vietnam for many of our initiatives, especially on the corporate sustainability front as with the Young Entrepreneur Award, và now the Business Case competition. The purpose of these initiatives is to equip the future generations of Vietnam with the necessary future skills such as employability skills. Through this Asia-wide exercise, Vietnamese students can showcase their analytical & financial abilities.
