The information mainly cover Vietnam and Asian regions. Comparative data from other countries and regions are also available.
Empirical research concerning financial markets is currently hindered by several factors, among others the high access costs to financial and stock exchange data and the difficulty to obtain quality data. That is why the VNEFRC works to create verified, controlled and homogeneous databases over long periods, the same way CRSP does with American data, or EUROFIDAI for Europe.
The database covers different areas: economics, commodities, currencies, interest rates, bonds, equities, indexes, mutual funds, ... for vietnamese and international markets. The second mission consists of building a bibliographical database on the research production in finance in universities and research centers, indexing finance theses and working papers, along with links to the original documents.
The third mission is to offer high output computing capabilities, available to researchers who are interested in short term access to high performance and volume computing. With cloud computing technology and servers, the VNEFRC can provide researchers with an on-demand computer cluster for the required short period.
