Hong Kong's best listed companies and IROs celebrated as HKIRA proudly announced winners of the 3rd Investor Relations Awards
on 31 May 2017.
Over 250 guests from listed companies, the IR industry and investor community were present at the Awards Conference and Presentation Luncheon last Wednesday. This year, there are 54 winning companies, and delegates of Awards winners received the trophies and applause on stage during the Luncheon. The winners of the Overall Best IR Company by company size - Large Cap, Mid Cap, and Small Cap go to Tencent (SEHK: 700), Tongda (SEHK: 698) and Canvest Environmental (SEHK: 1381) respectively.
Mr. Romnesh Lamba of HKEX, Awards Luncheon Guest-of-Honour, expressed in his keynote speech that, as Stock Connect drives more trading and the odds of MSCI adding A-Shares to EM Index attracts increasing number of Asian investors, the challenges for IR rise and listed companies should value the importance of good IR.
Conference in the morning comprised of professionals from different aspects to share on the hottest and most relevant issues in the IR community. One of the panel discussions on Institutional Shareholder Activism (ISA) has drawn close attention, and speakers gave some new insights against the negative impression for listed companies and how IROs can handle.
