Surprising forecast from CFA Vietnam Forecast Dinner 2017
Forecast results by participants at 2017 Forecast Dinner showed that our investment professionals have positive outlook on overall economic indicators.
CFA Community Vietnam organized its 2nd Annual Forecast Dinner in Ho Chi Minh City in January 2017, joined by leading experts from Vietnam and Asia-Pacific region. The panelists and attendees gave their forecast for Vietnam’s economy and capital market in 2017, including GDP growth, inflation, exchange rate, macro-economic policies and the VN-Index; along with a general outlook for key industries, such as real estate, banking, and commodities.
The event attracted more than 130 investment professionals, of which about 60 are CFA members. Delegates had the opportunity to submit their own 2017 forecast via CFA Institute’s forecast contest, with the most accurate submissions to be awarded prizes at next year’s event.
Forecast results showed that our investment professionals have positive outlook on overall economic indicators. Followings are attendees’ predictions for a number of macro-economic and financial indicators, comparing to 1H17 actual results.
Final results will be available in early 2018 when full year 2017 results are revealed.
