Chinatrust Financial Holding enjoys the most impressive standards of corporate governance in Asia, according to Asiamoney’s latest annual Corporate Governance Poll.

Taipei-based Chinatrust, which was placed second in last year’s Overall Winners ranking, went one better this year. Enjoying a strong poll debut in second place is Hong Kong-listed hotel and casino operator Galaxy Entertainment Group. Sun Hung Kai Properties, also from Hong Kong, remains third.

The domestic country categories witnessed a number of companies rising to the top for the first time, interspersed with some more regular winners. In China, property developer Sunac China Holdings ousts China Telecom from the top ranking, while Galaxy Entertainment edges out Sun Hung Kai across several categories to grab the top spot in Hong Kong.

Elsewhere, Infosys successfully defends its lead position as India’s best governed firm, and BNI of Indonesia remains top for overall corporate governance. Voters judge UOB to be the best firm for corporate governance in Singapore, a market characterised by volatile rankings and intense competition. Media Prima tops the ranks for corporate governance in Malaysia, while Thai Oil beats its competition in Thailand.

This year we also expanded the poll to cover South Korea. Voters there viewed Hyundai Motor Group as possessing the best corporate governance.

A total of 134 senior executives and research analysts from 86 firms voted in this year’s poll.
