FEATURED

 
With an objective to promote the significance of investor relations profession in the listed companies and among the investment community, HKIRA launched an IR Pledge Program to recognize companies achieving excellence in investor relations work.  This Program also aims to set a new market benchmark in the investment community and serve as a tool to help investors to identify companies maintaining good standards and resources in investor relations.
 
At the moment, we have 14 reputable listed companies under IR Pledge.  We strongly encourage those corporate members adopting HKIRA IR Best Practices and Guidelines to apply for the IR Pledge Program.  As a participant, your company name will be listed under IR Pledge on the HKIRA’s website and you will be authorized to use HKIRA IR Pledge logo on your company website and business publications.

Companies with the IR Pledge status will be invited as speakers to share their IR best practices with the investment community at the events organized by HKIRA. For IR Pledge companies that have won prizes in the HKIRA’s Annual IR Awards, HKIRA will design the Excellent IR Service Benchmark with reference to their IR achievement and contribution. The constituent companies of the benchmark will serve as the gold standard for other companies to follow in terms of best practice of IR. Working with the Research Institute for Business at Hang Seng University, an IR intelligence report together with the IR Service Benchmark will enhance information transparency for IR practice in Hong Kong and Mainland China, leading to a higher quality of IR practice for the region.

How to apply?  Please write to info@hkira.com

A listed company is committed to following best investor relations practice should apply. Requirements include:
(i) hire at least one full-time dedicated IR staff
(ii) publish shareholder communication policy on its corporate website
(iii) C-levels or senior management attend investor meetings regularly
(iv) maintain good relationships with stakeholders
Subscription fee is HK$3,800 per year. An application fee of HK$1,000 at the first time of application.
