CapitaLand recognised as top investor relations performer in The IR Magazine’s Global Top 50
Singapore, 30 August 2013 – CapitaLand Limited (CapitaLand) is recognised as a top investor relations performer in The IR Magazine’s Global Top 50 (Global Top 50).
The Global Top 50 is the first of its kind, recognising top performers in investor relations across South East Asia, Greater China, the US, Canada, Europe and Brazil. It is the result of six regional awards, in which analysts and investors were surveyed on the best in investor relations in each of the regions over the past year.
The researchers have taken into account the different sizes from region to region of both the surveys undertaken and the markets the companies operate in. This is done by using the formula: total regional awards points, divided by the number of survey respondents, multiplied by the total regional market capitalisation.
The actual ranking order of the Global Top 50 will be announced at a gala event in New York City on 19 November 2013.
