Hi, I'm Peter Pham and AlphaVN.com is my creation. As a former prop trader with expertise in institutional sales and trading based in Vietnam my approach is to mix quantitative trading techniques and fundamental analysis to provide a unique view of the changes taking place in the emerging markets of Southeast Asia. Those changes create opportunities for both domestic and international investors. I also advise some of the biggest international funds in the world on how to trade and approach Vietnam’s markets. Some of my current picks have returned more than 100% since early 2011.
This has helped me build my local and international network of contacts through organizing company roadshows and conferences and has reached the next phase of development. In the past year AlphaVN has grown from a personal project to a respected voice covering Asian markets. Through AlphaVN's partnership with Stocktwits.com it is now possible to interact with an audience of up to 40 million people through both traditional media outlets like Reuters, CNN Money and Yahoo Finance. Having worked on both sides of the world (Asia and North America), I can help bridge the communications gap between East and West. I am able to illuminate the difference between Asia in theory and Asia in reality for market professionals from momentum traders to generational investors.
Building on this relationship, AlphaVN also has syndication partnerships with leading financial resource providers. On Seeking Alpha my work has generated enough traffic to garner top readership in multiple categories including Forex, Demographics and ETF Long and Short Ideas. On Motley Fool more than a dozen pieces gestated here at AlphaVN have been chosen Editor's Choice and generated significant traffic and discussion.
2012 also saw the publication of my first book, The Big Trade: Simple Solutions for Maximum Market Returns by Wiley.
Dedicated to telling the story of the billions under-served by the financial press, AlphaVN.com is becoming a unique offering in the world of information; creating a vital link between investors in the West looking for solid information about the economic changes happening in the East. It is our goal to provide the most accurate accounting of their money's true potential in these markets. Our position is that as Southeast Asia grows AlphaVN grows alongside it by providing the right information at the right time to the right people no matter where they might be. It is through in partnerships both in media and both sides of the investment aisle that we hope to bring Southeast Asia's compelling story to the investing world.
2012 was a great year for this little site and myself. 2013 promises to be even better.
