The Hanoi Stock Exchange expects to put the new HNX30 index into practice by the end of the second quarter.

The HNX30 will include the top 30 stocks on the bourse measured by capitalisation and liquidity.

The HNX30 was designed to meet the need of developing new products such as exchange-traded funds and index futures contracts.

The selection of stocks included in the HNX30 will be adjusted every six months.-VNA
