HKIRA IR Pledge Program

Official Launch of the IR Pledge Program at the 7th IR Awards Ceremony

Hong Kong Investor Relations Association (HKIRA) is pleased to launch the IR Pledge Program this year to recognize the excellence in investor relations practices by listed companies in Hong Kong. 
Ultimately, the program aims to set a new benchmark in the investment community and act as a key identifier for investors to recognize companies which are willing to devote more resources in IR. The program is now supported by four industry peers, namely, Financial Services Development Council, CFA Society Hong Kong, Hong Kong Securities and Investment Institute and Research Institute for Business of Hang Seng University. During the Awards Presentation Ceremony, a total of 12 companies were awarded the HKIRA Pledge Certificates. All of the awarded companies are IR Award winning companies for more than three times in the past years which demonstrated they are well-recognized by the investment community and confirmed their commitment to investor relations
The program is now open for application, for details please visit here !

HKIRA IR Awards Updates

HKIRA 7th IR Awards 2021
Now in its 7th consecutive year, the annual HKIRA Investor Relations ("IR") Awards has been recognising and honouring IR excellence and best practices among Hong Kong-listed companies and IR professionals. We were delighted to have a full house booking, receiving over 140 guests from the IR industry, investment community as well as representatives of listed companies, who all gathered at the IR Awards Conference and Awards Presentation Luncheon on 14 September to congratulate all the winners for their dedication and outstanding IR efforts.

We are very much encouraged to receive the overwhelming response from our supporters that the tickets for this event were fully sold one month before the event.  In order not to disappoint our supporters, thanks to the advanced technology and our media partners, the event is also live-streamed, so that a wider audience could join us online which we received more than 6,500 attendance online worldwide.

Highlights of this year's celebration can be enjoyed here !
