Piacente Partners with IR Magazine’s Forum & Awards for Greater China and Southeast Asia

For the second consecutive year, Piacente was proud to partner with IR Magazine as a sponsor of their Forum & Awards for both the Greater China and Southeast Asia regions, held virtually in December 2022. These events are among the IR industry’s most respected, featuring discussion panels, presentations and lively Q&A sessions with accomplished IR professionals, as well as an illustrious awards ceremony recognizing outstanding IR performance by both individuals and teams at the top of their game.

At this year’s events, investors, analysts and IR teams from Asia and abroad convened virtually to discuss critical issues relating to investor relations, corporate governance, shareholder needs and IR’s role in Asia-based publicly listed companies. Topics included the macroeconomic and capital market outlook for 2023, investor concerns around ESG disclosures and attracting capital in a bear market environment, among others.

As always, the highlight of each event was the awards ceremony commending excellence in IR practices. This year’s awards encompassed 24 categories for Greater China and 28 for Southeast Asia, spanning multiple market caps and sectors. Piacente clients Yum China (NYSE:YUMC and HKEX:9987) and Brii Biosciences (HKEX:2137) were award winners at the Greater China event while GoTo Group (IDX:GOTO) clinched three categories in Southeast Asia. Piacente’s President and Founder, Brandi Piacente, had the honor of presenting three awards during each ceremony.

As a leading full-service investor relations and financial public relations firm exclusively serving Asia-based companies, Piacente strives to promote IR best practices and elevate professional standards in the region. Our partnership with IR Magazine underscores our deep commitment to the IR industry while empowering us to better serve our clients throughout Asia.
