The number of digital transactions nearly tripled that of the same period last year. Transaction value reached VND1,700 trillion, an increase of more than five times compared to the same period in 2020.

The bank committed to making an annual investment of $50 million in technology infrastructure over the past three years and at least in the next five years.

At the online event, Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors cum CEO Luu Trung Thai emphasized that MB is determined to become the most convenient bank in Vietnam.

"MB will continue to affirm its solid position in the top five, while striving to fulfill more ambitious targets in the new strategic period, consolidating the financial group model on a digital basis in order to strengthen the connection among customers, services and products of MB and its subsidiaries," he said.

In addition to MB's solid performance, in the first six months of the year, its six subsidiaries also achieved outstanding growth in business scale. Military Insurance Joint Stock Corporation (MIC) jumped up one rank to enter the industry Top 5, while MB Ageas Life Insurance Company Limited rose one rank to enter the Top 11 agency channel APE (with 2.5 percent of the market share), accompanied by a growth rate of 266 percent - the highest in the market.

"The subsidiaries’ contribution to MB Group’s total profit accounted for 13.2 percent, which is a strong improvement compared to five years ago," said Thai.

Director of Research and Corporate Development Dam Nhan Duc stressed: "In the 2017-2021 phase, MB has consistently achieved a faster growth rate compared to the average of the seven largest Vietnamese commercial banks and the top three banks of each country in the region and the world."

The revenue and profit of MB Group by the end of 2021 are forecast to triple compared to 2016.
