Overwhelming response was garnered successfully for the first ever PhillipCapital Regional Corporate Day on the 10th of March 2015 at Hilton Hotel, Orchard.
PhillipCapital organised this event to deliver unbiased, direct access to corporate issuers, industry thought leaders and analysis from our very own research teams from the participant countries.
Having a global footprint enabled the regional offices of PhillipCapital to put their heads together in unison to gather 17 listed companies from Singapore, India, Indonesia and Thailand to participate in this event. Listed companies with high market capitalisation such as Raffles Medical Group, OSIM, Beauty Community, Sheng Siong, Inter Fareast Engineering, Garuda Indonesia, Tiga Pilar Sejahtera, Sawit Sumbermas Sarana, Aarti Industries Limited, CanFin Homes, Container Corp, Finolex Industries, JK Cement, Tata Communications, Ultratech Cement and VA Tech Wabag participated. This event successfully attracted more than 150 institutional investors.
Through a series of breakout sessions, delegates furthered their understanding on the various sectors such as health, consumer products, communications, transportation, telco, airline, manufacturing etc. As the companies’ senior management shared about their companies’ results, the delegates were able to identify tangible opportunities while also questioning management about future plans.
The meetings were so popular that most companies had back-to-back meetings, where some of the corporates even had lunch meetings and thus, missed the sumptuous catered buffet lunch where the other delegates were also networking.
Some institutional clients were so impressed with the corporate day that they gave feedback such as, “Phillip is doing a good job going regional” and “the meetings were really informative”. Some even highlighted that PhillipCapital should have organised a two-day regional event instead of one, as they felt that they did not get enough in one day.
Through these knowledge sharing sessions, we were able to offer buy-side investment professionals access to corporates, which served as the key take away as they were able to gain meaningful insights and value in their investment process.
