SMIC bags awards for investor relations


Conglomerate SM Investments Corp. (SMIC) on Monday said it bagged three awards during the 11th Institutional Investor Corporate Awards 2021 organized by the Hong Kong-based Alpha Southeast Asia magazine.

SMIC secured the Most Organized Investor Relations, Best Senior Management Investor Relations (IR) Support and Strongest Adherence to Corporate Governance from the said event. It received the nod of majority of the 502 individual investors and analysts who voted.

The company topped two out of the three categories by garnering the highest number of votes for the Best Senior Management IR Support, the seventh consecutive year for SMIC and the Strongest Adherence to Corporate Governance, its eighth year. For the Most Organized Investor Relations, this is the 10th year that SM has received this award.

SM Investments Consultant for Investor Relations and Sustainability Timothy Daniels said the awards are “meaningful,” considering the challenges every industry has faced with the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We thank Alpha Southeast Asia for their continued recognition of the company’s dedication in fostering confidence with our stakeholders. This extends our resolve to better serve the public,” Daniels said.

“During the pandemic we had to innovate on how we engaged with the investment community and general public though online forums, enhanced disclosures and via our cutting-edge, user-friendly website. We are pleased to see that not only has our overall engagement increased but that our stakeholders recognize and appreciate our efforts.”

Alpha Southeast Asia said it was able to collect votes from over 500 investors across Southeast Asia, as well as in the United States and Europe. Participants included institutional investors, insurance companies, private banks, fund managers, equity and fixed income bankers, as well as buy and sell-side analysts, among others.
