Ayala Land, Globe among Asia’s best companies – Institutional Investor

Ayala Land and Globe tied for the second spot as the Philippines’ Best Company in the 2015 All-Asia Executive Team, an exclusive ranking of the country’s corporate leaders by investment professionals. The annual ranking is presented by Institutional Investor, one of the world’s foremost financial publications.

Globe’s Ernest Cu placed second as Asia’s Best CEO in the Telecoms sector, and Ayala Land’s Bernard Vincent Dy placed third as Asia’s Best CEO in the Property sector, tied with Ming Li of China’s Sino Ocean Land Holdings. Globe’s Albert de Larrazabal was ranked third Asia’s Best CFO in the Telecoms sector, tied with Pankaj Miglani of India’s Bharti Airtel.

Ayala Land earned two more honors: third place for Asia’s Best Investor Relations (Property) and the same ranking for Asia’s Best Analyst Day (Real Estate), tied with Stockland Corp. of Australia. The rankings were obtained from sell-side analyst responses.

“Once again, Ayala group is represented through strong placements for Globe Telecom and Ayala Land,” said Institutional Investor Asia Publisher Prachish Chakravorty. “These are an excellent set of results and proof again of the success of Ayala’s commitment through its various businesses to transparency and open communication with global institutional markets.”

The survey results were based on feedback from 820 buy-side analysts and money managers at nearly 500 firms that collectively manage an estimated $1.09 trillion in Asia (ex-Japan) equities, and from 625 analysts at 94 brokerages. They evaluated a total of 1,568 companies across the region based on eight IR attributes, including accessibility of senior management, quality and depth of answers to inquiries, and transparency of financial reporting and disclosure. Buy- and sell-side responses were tabulated separately to produce distinct rankings. The poll concluded in March and results were published in July.
