Accordingly, Bank for Investment and Development of Viet Nam (BID) and insurer Bao Viet Holdings (BVH) are the two stocks selected for the VN30 basket in this phase to replace HCM Infrastructure Investment (CII) and Hau Giang Pharmaceutical (DHG) stocks.
With the addition of BID, the banking group will have nine representatives in the VN30 basket.

Currently, VN30 is a reference index of VFMVN30 ETF fund with a portfolio size of nearly VND6.8 trillion (US$291.85 million).
