Investment Banking

SAM Investment Banking works closely with leading companies in Vietnam and the SE Asia region by offering a wide range of services to meet corporate and project financing objectives. SAM Investment Banking has particular strengths and expertise in corporate restructuring, infrastructure, energy and natural resources.

Typically, we follow a three-step process:

1) Strategic Planning – Build long-term development strategies and execute their short-term tactical plans.

2) Implementation – Based on client requirements, source and determine the best and most efficient ways to channel appropriately structured financial capital flows to suit their business development strategy.

3) Follow Up – Advise and help build a sustainable business of strategic partners, financial partners, suppliers and customers that are necessary for the clients’ growth and the successful execution of their business strategy.

Although our primary focus is on Vietnam, we have been involved in projects in Indonesia, Malaysia, Lao PDR, Cambodia and Myanmar.
