In partnership with the Korean Stock Exchange, HOSE is introducing the KRX system—a technological platform designed to bolster management and oversight of Vietnam’s securities trading.
This system will apply modern technology to enhancing the management of stock trading in Vietnam, enabling same-day trading settlement (T+0), facilitating short selling, and streamlining payment processes.
These upgrades aim to tackle market challenges head-on and position Vietnam’s securities market for heightened recognition.
On August 21, HOSE convened a session with key stakeholders to discuss the impending launch of the KRX system, the Vietnam News Agency reported.
A representative from the stock exchange said that the Ministry of Finance had issued directives ushering in the operation of the KRX system in 2023.
While market participants and securities firms are at varying levels of readiness, regulatory authorities are poised to facilitate a seamless transition.
During the initial phase of implementation, the KRX system will prioritize essential functionalities, gradually incorporating advanced features over time.
Collaborative efforts between the Vietnam Stock Exchange, HOSE, and the Hanoi Stock Exchange are underway to align the legal frameworks with the deployment timeline of the KRX system.
