You deserve to be recognized for your effort in 2016!

The launch of Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect on 5 December 2016 has aroused increasing market attention of Mainland investors on the Hong Kong market.

The 3rd IR Awards will soon be launching around the Chinese New Year.

Stay tuned with all our updates!

"Yay" to 2017 and "Phew" to 2016! To many local IR elites, last year might probably have been a challenging time during the economic downturn. The new requirement of ESG report, continuous investor meetings and travels, and the expanding pool of investors from Mainland China for Stock Connect eligible stocks all made 2016 a very busy year.

We see your effort, and we know you deserve to be recognized for it! In the past two years, HKIRA cheered for the best practices of IR leaders for their team and their work in the annual Investor Relations Awards.

The 3rd IR Awards 2017 is soon to be launched. This year, we will be introducing new award categories, to better and fairly honor the excellence of IR in various aspects. We invite you and everyone, including all listco, service providers, as well as domestic and international investment community, to join us for nomination of Hong Kong-listed companies and the local IR professionals who have been devoted to perform the best in investor relations in all aspects.

The Investor Relations Symposium jointly organized by HKIRA & HKEX for the forth time has become an annual sought-after event for IR industry. HKIRA is pleased the IR Symposium 2016 successfully gathered over 200 IROs, corporate executives and industry professionals attended.

Themed "The Key of Communication" this year, elite speakers shared their experience in communication with internal C-levels managements, addressing ESG issues, facing Stock Connect potential investors, and across media platforms. The afternoon had been a meaningful learning experience.
