Vietnamese corporate bond market faces maturity headwinds

Analysts predict turbulent times ahead for Vietnam's corporate bond market due to a substantial amount of maturing bonds in the second half of this year. Stock brokerage VNDirect reports approximately VND273tr (USD11.57bn) worth of corporate bonds are due this year, predominantly in the latter two quarters. Challenges in meeting bond redemption obligations have already impacted property developers, eroding investor confidence. Although a temporary solution of rolling over corporate bonds was executed in Q2, it does not solve the root issues. Experts advocate for increased transparency, regulatory oversight, and the development of a secondary market to rebuild trust.
