Vietnam's only billionaire Pham Nhat Vuong.

Vuong is the richest man in Vietnam, but there is little information about his private life and his family.

Currently, Vuong is the Chairman of Vingroup while his wife, Pham Thu Huong, and Huong’s younger sister, Pham Thuy Hang, are Vice Chairs. As of October 2014, Vuong owned 423 million shares of Vingroup, equivalent to VND20.4 trillion (29.8%).

On the list of the 10 richest people in the Vietnam Stock Exchange in 2014, Vuong ranked first and the gap between him and others in the list was very wide. The second and third richest men, Doan Nguyen Duc (Chairman of Hoang Anh Gia Lai Group) and Tran Dinh Long (Chairman of Hoa Phat Group), had VND7.781 billion and VND6,101 billion, respectively.

Vuong is currently the only Vietnamese dollar billionaire in Forbes ranking. He has been on this list for three consecutive years. According to the latest report by Forbes, Vuong has total assets of $1.7 billion, increasing from $1.6 billion in the previous year. Vuong’s ranking was 1,118 on the list, compared to last year's 1,092.

The next name in this family is Mrs. Pham Thu Huong, Vuong’s wife and the Vice Chair of Vingroup, who owns nearly 73 million shares (5.14%), worth VND3,642 billion. Huong is one of the top 200 richest people in the Vietnamese Stock Market and ranks first in the top 50 richest women in the Vietnamese stock market.

The last person in this "super" rich family is Mrs. Pham Thuy Hang, who is also a Vice Chair of Vingroup, with over 48.7 million shares, worth VND2,432 billion. Hang also ranked No. 2 on the list of the 50 richest women in the Vietnam Stock Exchange.

However, both Huong and Hang have never appeared publicly. Information and images of these women remain a secret.

People only know that Huong has accompanied Vuong in the process of building a powerful Vingroup.

In addition, the Vietnam Investment Group JSC, in which Vuong holds more than 50% of capital, owns over 180 million shares of Vingroup (12.68%). Thus, the total number of Vingroup shares held by Vuong, his family and his company is over 676.36 million, representing 47.62% of the charter capital of Vingroup.

Vietnam's only billionaire Pham Nhat Vuong, founder and chairman of Vingroup, spent the past year expanding his conglomerate's real estate business.

He launched dozens of new projects of which the most notable is Vinhomes Central Park, a $1.5 billion development, which will feature an 81-story skyscraper, expected to be the tallest building in Vietnam, dozens of apartment buildings and a park modelled after New York City's Central Park.

He is also building a theme park complex on Phu Quoc island, which the government plans to turn into a tourist destination.

Vingroup's expansion into retail is underway with 25 Vincom shopping centres due to open in 2015.

In the next three years he wants to open 100 supermarkets (VinMart) and 1,000 convenience stores.

Vuong studied in Moscow, then moved to Ukraine where he started Technocom, a maker of instant noodles. He moved back to Vietnam in 2001 to enter into real estate, eventually selling his food company in 2009 to Nestle.

Vingroup also has investments in education and healthcare.
