IR Magazine Forum & Awards
Greater China

Friday, November 30, 2018

Conrad Hotel, Hong Kong

About the event

For over 28 years, IR Magazine have honored excellence in investor relations around the world. We were pleased to be back Hong Kong for 2018 to continue recognising and helping further IR best practice. This year’s Greater China event attracted over 150 senior IR professionals – this internationally renowned event looked at the very best the IR community has to offer!

OUR FORUM: The event kicked off with a forum where investors, analysts and heads of IR from small, mid and large cap companies came together to discuss key issues relating to investor relations, corporate governance, shareholder needs and the role of senior management in IR.

OUR AWARDS: The forum sessions were followed by our prestigious awards ceremony. We presented two types of awards categories – researched and nominated – both celebrating the success of those individuals and companies that are leading the way in IR across Greater China.

For our researched categories, companies do not submit nominations. Instead, hundreds of analysts and investors cast their votes and give their opinions on which companies do the best IR in the region. In our nominated categories, companies have the opportunity to nominate themselves, free of charge, for aspects of IR that complement our researched categories. More information on the categories and how winners are chosen can be found below.

Our awards by research are different from most others and also from our awards by nomination: for our awards by research, companies do not submit nominations. The winners are identified by in-depth research and any publicly traded company is eligible to be considered. This survey is the only one of its kind to go directly to the investment community, canvassing the opinions of the people who matter to you most.

April-July: Online survey
IR Magazine has been building investment community databases over the past 20 years. As part of the updating process, listed companies are contacted every year for details of the professionals who currently cover their stock. IR Magazine then conducts an electronic survey of buy-side and sell-side analysts and portfolio managers. Each survey respondent is asked to nominate and rank up to five companies in a host of different research categories, from best IRO to best reporting.

September- October: Results analysis & short lists announced
Analysis of the results begins once the survey stage of the research is complete. Points are allocated to each company depending on how frequently it is nominated. The companies with the highest point scores in each individual awards category make the short list for that award. The top company will go on to win the award. Best-in-country awards are determined by the highest aggregate scores across all research categories.

The IR Magazine awards team receives the results and contacts all short-listed companies to give them the good news. The short lists are then published to the entire IR community a month before the event.

November: Winners announced
This year’s winners will be announced live on stage at the awards ceremonies in Hong Kong and Singapore, attended by the leading lights of the Asian investor relations community.

January: Report published
Shortly afterwards, the Award-Winning IR – Asia 2018 report is published on our website. The report includes all the results and analysis, as well as verbatim comments from investors and analysts on their nominations.

The judging process is made up of two simple phases:

PHASE 1: Judges are sent all submissions after the entry deadline for review. They are asked to score the entries for each category based on the given criteria. This will form the initial shortlists.

PHASE 2: For the second phase, judges come together to discuss and review, with renewed scrutiny, those entries that have made it through to the shortlist. This final stage will determine the winners and high commendations, where applicable, in each category.
