Under his leadership, the company has grown from managing a single US$10 million fund in 2003, to an investment house managing more than US$1.8 billion across four funds, and offering a complete range of corporate finance and real estate advisory services. Since the start of 2006, Mr. Lam has brought three new funds to market: the US$600 million VinaLand Limited Fund, which invests in Vietnamese real estate assets; the DFJ VinaCapital Technology Fund, a venture capital fund managed in cooperation with Draper Fisher Jurvetson; and the US$402 million Vietnam Infrastructure Limited, the first fund dedicated to infrastructure development in Vietnam.

Before founding VinaCapital, Mr. Lam was a Partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers Vietnam, where he led the Corporate Finance and Management Consulting practices throughout the Indochina region (Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia). The transactions he directed there included equitisations by numerous state-owned enterprises, market entrance acquisitions by foreign companies, and the initiation of debt and equity placements for Vietnamese companies. Mr. Lam has also held management positions at Deutsche Bank and Coopers & Lybrand in Vietnam and Canada.

With more than 12 years of experience in Vietnam, Mr. Lam is an authority on investments, mergers and acquisitions, corporate restructuring, and privatisations. He is a frequent speaker at international investment seminars and was featured as Vietnam’s “Mr. Wall Street” in Fortune magazine. Mr. Lam holds a BA in Commerce and Political Science from the University of Toronto, and is a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Canada. He is also a Certified Public Accountant in Vietnam and holds a Securities License there.
