Ayala Corporation was named among the top Philippine firms by Alpha Southeast Asia in its 4th Annual Institutional Investor Corporate Awards ceremony held on August 30 at Shangri-la Makati.
The Hong Kong-based publication catering to global investors cited Ayala as having the strongest adherence to Corporate Governance, best Strategic Corporate Social Responsibility, and best Annual Report. The awards are based on tallied votes among 477 investors, pension funds, hedge funds, equity and fixed income brokers and analysts with investment interests in the Southeast Asian region. In 2012, Ayala was also recognized by the magazine for the same accomplishments.
Ayala General Counsel Solomon M. Hermosura accepted the award from Siddiq Bazarwala, Alpha’s publisher.
Other Ayala group companies cited were Globe for its consistent dividend policy, BPI Family Savings Bank, and BPI Capital Corporation.
