GoBear has appointed Mr. Bao Nguyen as its new Vietnam Country Director, effective immediately.

Mr. Nguyen has more than 24 years of international experience in financial services in countries such as the US, South Korea, Singapore and Vietnam, including senior leadership roles at Prudential, AIA, Citibank, Samsung, Standard Chartered, and BIDV Metlife before joining GoBear.

“The knowledge, expertise and experience Mr. Nguyen brings to GoBear further strengthens our footprint in Vietnam and reinforces our position at the forefront of financial comparison services providers,” said Mr. Andre Hesselink, CEO and Co-founder of GoBear. “This appointment continues to consolidate the leadership of our company and is evidence of the great career opportunities that employment with GoBear can offer.”

Vietnamese by birth, Mr. Bao Nguyen was raised in Washington D.C. and graduated from the University of Maryland College Park, majoring in Economics. He is fluent in English and Vietnamese and is known not only as a charismatic leader but also as an active supporter of the community and an enthusiastic tennis player.

“I am a huge believer in financial inclusion and I see unprecedented opportunities for GoBear Vietnam and together we will continue the journey to make financial services accessible to more and more Vietnamese people,” he said. 

Since its official launch in Vietnam in early December 2016 with four products - comparisons of credit cards, personal loans, travel insurance, and fixed deposits - as well as educational pages on unsecured loans, GoBear Vietnam has landed over a million visitors to www.gobear.com/vn and become a trusted provider of comparison services for financial products in the country.

GoBear is Asia’s first and only metasearch engine in insurance and financial products. It was founded based on the simple premise that a consumer should find freedom and ease in choosing complex financial products like insurance, credit cards and loans. Headquartered in Singapore since early 2015, it has established a presence in six countries: Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Manila, Hong Kong and Vietnam, and will continue to expand across Asia this year.

As one of the fastest-growing fintech startups in the region, GoBear leads the way in making financial products accessible to all with its unbiased and personalized comparison process. GoBear’s user-oriented platform neither aggregates nor sells products; it simply offers consumers a free and transparent comparison process based on their financial needs and is not influenced by service providers’ commissions or advertising. The result is a user-friendly experience that empowers users to make better informed decisions efficiently, saving both time and money.
