IT WASN’T TOO long ago that the world’s PR and marketing sector was dominated by Madison Avenue, and the words “investor relations” (IR) were still an unknown throughout much of the world.

But with the rapid rise of investor relations thank to firms like Singapore’s own Financial PR, all this is changing quickly.

And now the IR firm has achieved another honor, this time at the 2012 Gold Standard Awards in Hong Kong.

Financial PR Group, with offices in Singapore, Hong Kong, Taipei and Beijing, was among the finalists for the 2012 Gold Standard Awards in the ‘Specialist Consultancy of The Year’ category.

The firm has been recognized for its work with a number of clients in the areas of corporate communications, investor relations and public relations.

The Gold Standard Award is a recognition of the most successful public affairs and communications work that took place in the Asia Pacific.

“We are very happy to be the finalist in this year’s Gold Standard Awards. To be among the finalists is an achievement in itself.

“Owing to our regional expertise and extensive network, our teams at Financial PR have been an integral part of our clients’ communication campaigns in specific countries or across Asia Pacific,” said Kathy Zhang, founder and Managing Director of Financial PR Group.

Financial PR services over 100 clients  including Yangzijiang Shipbuilding (Holdings) Ltd, ARA Asset Management, Hi-P International, Xtep International, Chow Sang Sang and Eu Yan Sang International.

“Good communication plays a vital role in helping businesses to stay ahead of competition and to clinch more deals and win customers,” Ms. Zhang added.

Through resilience, hard work, unique local market knowledge and entrenched connections with institutional investors and media organizations in Asia, Financial PR builds brand equity, maximizes communication opportunities and increases market valuation for its clients.
