The awards are divided into two categories. The awards-by-research categories are chosen by a survey of hundreds of portfolio managers, buy-side analysts and sell-side analysts who cover South East Asia-based companies.
The awards-by-nomination categories allow companies to submit entries about their IR work over the last year. IR Magazine journalists sort through the entries and select the short lists, then a panel of judges picks the winners.
This year, the judging panel featured:
– Tim Human, senior reporter, IR Magazine
– Professor Roy Ling, managing director, RL Capital Management
– Vijay Natarajan, real estate and Reits analyst
– Jeannie Ong, executive IR adviser
– Harold Woo, president, Investor Relations Professionals Association (Singapore).
In 2020, the IR Magazine Awards – South East Asia took place virtually for the first time, featuring video interviews, networking and live competitions.
The event followed the IR Magazine Forum – South East Asia, where speakers discussed topics such as virtual engagement, market volatility and evolving investor expectations on ESG issues.
