NDO – The financial publication Asiamoney announced that the FPT Corporation was the ‘Best for Corporate Governance’ in Vietnam at a ceremony taking place on February 17 in Hong Kong, China.

The recognition came from a poll of over 300 financial leaders and experts in the region.

In a notice issued on January 18, FPT said that to achieve the recognition, the corporation topped four out of five lists of Asiamoney’s Corporate Governance Poll 2015 -Best for Disclosure and Transparency, Best for Shareholders’ Rights and Equitable Treatment, Best for Responsibilities of Management and the Board of Directors, and the Best for Investor Relations.

Asiamoney announced the rankings in nine Asian countries to honour companies which had performed better than management agencies’ requirements on corporate governance. In Vietnam, Asiamoney selected 18 companies for the poll.

With nearly ten years of stocks listed on the Stock Exchange, the FPT Corporation has been one of businesses paying the highest dividends, treating shareholders fairly and ensuring their rights.

In terms of disclosure, the corporation is always one of the earliest companies to announce financial reports.

The company has also organised quarterly meetings with investors and attended many local and international investment workshops to meet with potential investors. In 2015, the corporation’s high-ranking leaders and division for investor relations met with 131 foreign investment funds.
