The 2019 All-Asia (ex-Japan) Executive Team is the 9th annual ranking of Asian corporate leaders based on a survey of nearly 2,500 investment professionals from 892 financial services firms. The voters included buy-side analysts, money managers and sell-side researchers at securities firms and financial institutions that cover the region. All votes are weighted by rating (five, four, three, two, and one), on the following attributes: senior executives are accessible; IR team is well informed and empowered to speak; timely and appropriate disclosure; responds quickly and thoroughly; corporate governance; ESG/SRI reporting; corporate documents (including website); company executes on strategy. These ratings were aggregated to produce an overall IR Program rank for each company.
