Vietnam index rises 1 pct after fund's review
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI closed up 1.03 percent on Tuesday in robust trade, with gains in most big caps offset losses in several shares after a fund's review.

Confectionary firm Kinh Do Corp KDC.HM tumbled 6.85 percent after the Market Vectors Vietnam ETF VNM.P , a major exchange-traded fund holding Vietnamese shares, lowered the KDC stock's weight on its portfolio on Monday.
As many as 119.81 million shares changed hands, the highest level since Dec. 3, Thomson Reuters data showed.
