Asia’s Best Analyst Days Honor 49 Companies

“Over the past year we have seen a strong increase in demand from global investors to meet with company executives,” Shariff Koya, Hong Kong–based head of Asia-Pacific research marketing, account management and corporate access at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, tells Institutional Investor in a feature accompanying this year’s roster of Asia’s Top Corporate Access Providers. “The demand is focused primarily on meeting with corporates in India and China — two of the biggest economies in the world — where new government regimes, reform agendas and influence on the global economy have piqued interest.”

To find out which Asian companies host the type of event that financial professionals find most beneficial, Institutional Investor asked buy- and sell-side participants in the 2015 All-Asia Executive Team survey — our exclusive annual ranking of the region’s best corporate leaders and investor outreach programs — to tell us which of the entities they cover host the most constructive analyst days. We received responses from more than 1,160 investment professionals at close to 490 financial services firms. Respondents from the buy side work at institutions that collectively manage nearly $971 billion in Asia (ex-Japan) equities.

A total of 49 companies from 11 countries earn an appearance on this inaugural roster. More than a third of those names — 18 — are headquartered in China, while Hong Kong and India are home to nine winners each. Australia, Indonesia, Macau, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan and Thailand are also represented.
