The awards program was organised by the Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants (ISCA), Singapore Institute of Directors (SID), The Business Times (BT), supported by Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA), Singapore Exchange (SGX), and sponsored by bank Julius Baer.
The Singapore Corporate Awards epitomise Singapore’s highest accolade in Corporate Governance and consolidates five of Singapore’s key awards – Best Managed Board Award, Best Chief Executive Officer Award, Best Chief Financial Officer Award, Best Investor Relations Award and Best Annual Report Award.
Yoma Strategic Holdings Limited
A prominent real estate developer in Myanmar and the People’s Republic of China, Yoma Strategic Holdings Limited is the first Myanmar company listed on the Singapore Exchange to win at the Singapore Corporate Awards. Having previously won the Best Managed Board Award (Silver) in 2015, the company received the same award again in 2016 in the category for companies with S$300 million to S$1 billion in market capitalisation. The Best Managed Board Award recognises and encourages enhanced corporate governance within companies.

For the second year running since 2015, Q&M Dental Group’s Founder and Group CEO, Dr. Ng Chin Siau, won the Best CEO Award in the category for companies with $300 million to $1 billion in market capitalisation. Currently serving over 600,000 local patients, Q&M is the largest private dental healthcare group in Singapore. The Best CEO Award recognises CEOs who have led an organisation to scale new heights in its respective industry segment, while also achieving excellence in corporate governance.

“For many SGX-listed companies, winning the coveted Singapore Corporate Awards represents a significant accomplishment in their corporate disclosure standards and related corporate governance efforts. Indeed, it is a proud moment to know that our clients are getting these well-deserved awards – we are as delighted to hear their success stories.”

About The Singapore Corporate Awards:
The Singapore Corporate Awards (SCA) was launched on 19 September 2005 as the umbrella awards for exemplary corporate governance practices for listed companies in Singapore. It seeks to consolidate existing awards while introducing new awards in the area of excellent corporate governance.
The Best Annual Report Award was first introduced in 1974 to encourage listed companies to increase the extent and quality of voluntary disclosures in their annual reports. Prior to the SCA, this competition was jointly organised over the years by the Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants, Singapore Exchange Limited, Singapore Institute of Directors, The Business Times, Securities Investors Association (Singapore), and Investment Management Association of Singapore.
The Best Managed Board Award, the first of its kind in the Asia Pacific region, was launched in 2003 to recognise and encourage enhanced corporate governance within companies. The Best Investor Relations Award and Best CFO Award were added in 2005 to form the Singapore Corporate Awards. The Best CEO Award was added in 2006. A special one-off Distinguished Contribution to Corporate Governance Award was given to Mr JY Pillay in 2015 for the tenth anniversary of the Singapore Corporate Awards. A Special Recognition Award was launched in 2016 to recognise outstanding and exemplary conduct related to corporate governance not covered by the other awards.
