Early years[edit]

Minh was born in February 3, 1971 in Hanoi, Vietnam during the peak of the Vietnam War. In 1976 after the end of the war, Minh's parents moved the family back to their home town of Ho Chi Minh City. Minh's most notable childhood achievements include winning the Ho Chi Minh City Judo Championship and the First Prize in Physics - Ho Chi Minh City's High School Competition, both in 1986. From 1986 to 1988, Minh studied at Thanh My Tay High School (current name: Gia Dinh) in Ho Chi Minh City. During this time, he was taught by two well-known teachers: Mr. Le Quang Anh (teacher in Mathematics) and Mr. Le Quang Diem (teacher in Physics).

In 1989, Minh went to the Soviet Union under a full government scholarship to study at the Azerbaijan State Oil Academy, Baku, Azerbaijan, then subsequently at the Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas, Moscow, Russia and received a Master of Science Degree in Oil & Gas - Mechanical Engineering in 1994. Soon after, Minh received another Master's Degree in Applied Finance and Investment from FINSIA in Australia. Minh speaks Vietnamese, English and Russian. Minh lives in Hanoi.

In 2005, Minh was co-managing two of Templeton's Asian equity funds, whose yearly performance ranked 2nd and 8th amongst a large peer group of managed Asian investment funds according to Micropal. Near the end of 2006, Minh left Templeton to co-found Vietnam Asset Management (VAM) to take advantage of the investment potential offered as a result of Vietnam's booming economic growth. Under Minh's leadership as CEO & CIO, VAM-managed Vietnam equity funds[10][11][12][13] consistently outperformed the benchmark VN-Index and several other peers by a significant margin throughout the years. Most recently, Minh joined Techcom Securities as its Chairman. Within 2 years, Minh helped transform Techcom Securities from a relatively modest brokerage house to the second largest securities institution in Vietnam,[14] with many awards granted by prestigious regional financial publications.[15]
