SINGAPORE, Oct 15, 2019 – Twenty-four ASEAN-registered companies were honoured for their best-in-class investor engagement at the inaugural 2019 All-Asia Most Honored Companies Awards co-hosted by Institutional Investor (“II”) and Investor Relations Professionals Association (Singapore) (“IRPAS”) at an award ceremony supported by the Singapore Exchange and sponsored by Orient Capital.

Every year, Institutional Investor asks buy-side analysts, money managers and sell-side researchers at securities firms and financial institutions that cover the region to name companies they cover and rate their chief executive officers, chief financial officers, and investor relations. All votes are assigned a rating (five, four, three, two, and one).

Companies’ IR programs are rated on: accessibility of senior executives; whether IR managers are well-informed or empowered to speak; timely and appropriate disclosure; speed and thoroughness of responses; corporate governance; ESG/SRI reporting; corporate documentation (inc. website); execution of strategy. These ratings are aggregated to produce an overall IR Program rank for each company.

The overall rankings in each of the four categories – Best CEO, Best CFO, Best IR Professional, Best IR Company – are based on combined buy- and sell-side votes.

The ASEAN results were calibrated from II’s All-Asia Most Honored Companies survey. They follow a robust process and have high data integrity. Companies were grouped by their registration domicile and 257 companies from ASEAN were nominated by 454 buy-side portfolio managers and sell-side analysts from 320 firms casting over 9,000 votes. The title of “Most Honored Company” goes to companies that secure two or more top-three appearances.
