July 2024





We are immensely proud to congratulate all the esteemed recipients of the 10th HKIRA Investor Relations Awards. These accolades recognize their outstanding achievements and exemplary investor relations practices.

Over the past decade, the investor relations community in Hong Kong has navigated through a myriad of challenges and transformative changes. We have witnessed the increasing focus on corporate governance, the launch of ESG regulations, the rise of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies, the advent of big data and AI, the disruptive impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the impact of geopolitical landscape on the Hong Kong capital market. Throughout these turbulent times, our IR professionals have risen to the occasion, demonstrating remarkable resilience and adaptability. Our community has not merely weathered the storms, but has emerged stronger, more innovative, and more influential than ever before.

The year, themed " Celebrating a Decade of Collaborative Efforts: Strengthening Investor Trust and Hong Kong's International Financial Centre Position", attracted over 200 guests from listed companies, the investment community, and IR professionals, who gathered to witness the outstanding achievements in investor relations practices that are setting new benchmarks for the profession in Hong Kong. Thanks to our Media Partners, irasia, Gelonghui and Yuediaoyan, there were about 5,000 participants joined the event online.

The ceremony was honored to have Dr. Kelvin Wong, SBS JP, Chairman of the Accounting and Financial Reporting Council, as the Guest of Honor. In his insightful speech, Dr. Wong shared his valuable insights and expectations for the investor relations work of Hong Kong-listed companies, underscoring the strategic value that IR brings to organizations and the capital markets.

We have invited distinguished speakers from regulators, government body and industry experts to share their insights during the morning conference. The conference opened with a keynote address from Ms. Katherine Ng, Head of Listing at Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited (HKEX). This was followed by Ms. Jennifer Lee, Director of Corporate Finance at the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC). Lastly, we were honored to welcome Dr. Au King Lun, Executive Director and Board Member of the Financial Services Development Council (FSDC).

The 40 winning companies, selected after rigorous evaluation, have truly elevated the bar for investor relations excellence in Hong Kong. Their achievements serve as inspirational examples for the IR community, showcasing the profession's ability to rise to the challenges and seize opportunities presented by the evolving capital markets.

Winners for the “Overall Best IR Company” by company size – Large Cap, Mid Cap and Small Cap – they are China Resources Beer (Holdings) Company Limited, Xtep International Holdings Limited and CGN New Energy Holdings Co., Ltd.
