Four companies swept the board in Institutional Investor's rankings of Asia excluding-Japan (AXJ) corporate leaders, as chosen by almost 1,400 investment professionals.
China State Construction International, a Hong Kong construction and engineering business, Kerry Logistics Network, the Hong Kong-based freight and warehouse provider, Macau resort company MGM China, and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSMC), best known as a key supplier to Apple, had the best chief executives, chief financial officers, investor relations (IR) heads and IR programs in their industries, according to Asia-focused investment pros.
Institutional Investor, the global finance magazine, published its 2016 All-Asia Executive Team rankings on Tuesday in the U.S.
The magazine asked portfolio managers and buy- and sell-side analysts at nearly 600 financial institutions to score the performance of executives at companies they covered, as well as the companies themselves on various IR and corporate governance issues such as whether the companies made their boards and senior executives accessible to investors and whether they provided timely disclosures of essential financial information.
The buy-side professionals surveyed manage an estimated $963 billion worth of AXJ securities. To be eligible for the rankings, the companies needed to have their HQ in AXJ and trade on a regional exchange.
The magazine used the scores to rank the companies in four categories - Best CEO, Best CFO, Best IR Professional and Best IR Company - within their individual business sectors.
China State Construction topped the Industrial sector in every one of the four categories, as did Kerry Logistics in Transportation, MGM China in Gaming and Lodging and TSMC in Technology/Semiconductors.
Several other companies finished in the top three of every category within their sector, including Chinese e-commerce giant JD.com, insurers Ping An and AIA Group, gaming company Galaxy Entertainment, and tech firms Tata Consultancy Services and Infosys.
