Decision Lab surveyed over 1,000 adults in Vietnam in April to learn about their current financial priorities, choices, motivations, and expectations for their financial future.

Here are some of the key findings:

  • Saving for unexpected hardship and protecting their families from emergencies are the top financial priorities for half of the respondents. This is a significant increase from previous years, likely due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the increasing economic uncertainty in Vietnam.
  • Investing is becoming more popular, but consumers are more cautious regarding their risk appetite. They prefer safe-haven investments like savings accounts, gold, and securities.
  • Digital currencies are an exception to this trend. Over half of the crypto owners plan to invest more in assets like Bitcoin. This is likely due to the high returns that some investors have seen in recent years.

These findings have important implications for banks and financial institutions in Vietnam. They need to provide savings and investment products that offer trustworthiness, transparency, and security. They also need to showcase these values through their marketing messages and brand campaigns. Here are some additional thoughts on the findings:

  • The increase in the number of people who are saving for unexpected hardship is a positive sign. It shows that people are becoming more aware of the importance of financial security.
  • The cautious approach to investing is also understandable. The global economy is facing a number of challenges, and people are understandably hesitant to take on too much risk.
  • The interest in digital currencies is interesting. It is still a relatively new asset class, and there is a lot of volatility in the market. However, the high returns that some investors have seen have attracted a lot of attention.

Overall, the findings of the survey suggest that Vietnamese consumers are looking for safe and secure financial products. Banks and financial institutions that can offer these products will be well-positioned to attract and retain customers in the coming years.
