MISC bags quadruple institutional investor awards


MISC Bhd recently awarded for its excellence in investor relations, corporate governance and stewardship at the Alpha South-East Asia’s Ninth Annual Institutional Investor Awards for Corporates 2019 held on Sept 17, 2019 in Singapore.

MISC emerged as the winner in the “Best Senior Management Investor Relations Support” category. It was also named as the first runner-up for two other categories — namely “Most Organised Investor Relations” and “Most Consistent Dividend Policy” — and has been named as second runner-up in the “Strongest Adherence to Corporate Governance” category.

The winners were selected through an annual poll organised by Alpha South-East Asia magazine from mid-March 2019 until July 1, 2019, with votes collected from investors and analysts across the Asian region, as well as the US and Europe.

MISC president and group CEO Yee Yang Chien said in a statement: “MISC is honoured for the recognition as the ‘Best Senior Management Investor Relations Support’ by Alpha South-East Asia.

We are also very proud of the recognition given to us for the three other awards.

“This is a testament to our commitment in strengthening our relationships with the investment community. We will continue to build meaningful relationships with our stakeholders and driving sustainable value in line with our aspirations in moving energy to build a better world.”

MISC VP of corporate planning Emran Othman accepted all the awards on behalf of MISC.

The accolades reflect the investment community’s recognition of MISC’s efforts in upholding best practices in investor relations, its consistent dividend payments and demonstrating commitment to good corporate governance.
