A decade of continuous high growth

HDBank has been a bank with a decade of continuous high growth in the banking industry. Over the past 10 years, HDBank has achieved an average annual compound profit growth rate of 49.1%.

To maintain sustainable growth momentum over the long term, on one hand HDBank remains committed to a diversified retail strategy, serving small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and consumer finance, while on the other hand actively applying the best international standards in modern bank management. The bank pioneered the implementation of Basel II and in 2023 continued to upgrade to the Basel III international management standard, while also implementing an ESG strategy.

2023 also marked 10 years since HDBank’s merger with DaiABank and the acquisition of Societe Generale Viet Finance (SGVF), the predecessor of HD SAISON. These successful financial institution restructuring projects have created momentum for HDBank’s strong growth journey, expanding its presence to second-tier urban areas and rural areas to fulfill its chain financing programs and effectively meet the consumer credit needs of workers and individuals who have limited access to banking services.

Accompanying the economy

In addition to its vibrant business activities, HDBank also accompanies the economy with practical and meaningful programs. The bank implements multiple preferential loan packages with attractive interest rates to support people and businesses in economic development, contributing to mitigating loan-sharking activities. Furthermore, HDBank is a leading bank in promoting the “One Commune One Product” program, supporting farmers in bringing their products to digital sales channels, applying non-cash payment methods, and implementing practical social welfare programs.

Being proactive in fulfilling its social responsibilities, in 2023 HDBank implemented many meaningful programs, such as funding thousands of cataract surgeries, providing health insurance cards along with hundreds of scholarships, constructing hundreds of charity houses, promoting national unity in various areas across the country.
