This study aims to improve the operational efficiency of Vietnamese securities companies by analyzing international practices and deriving pertinent lessons. Employing a research sample of secondary data, including audited financial statements and financial safety ratio reports from 70 Vietnamese stock market companies between 2013 and 2020, the study adopts analytical, synthetic, and comparative methodologies, underpinned by historical materialism. It meticulously investigates and evaluates practical aspects of business efficiency in securities companies, pinpointing specific challenges impeding operational efficiency in the Vietnamese context. The findings emphasize the need for substantial financial resources, advanced technical infrastructure, enhanced human resource quality and research activities, development of consulting services, and diversification of business operations and investor clientele. Additionally, it highlights the importance of flexible business strategies and effective utilization of company strengths. These insights offer a blueprint for Vietnamese securities firms to improve their performance and competitiveness in the global market.
