Special Awards Recognizing Sustainable Development Achievements

Investor Relations Prominence Accentuated in Volatile Macroeconomic Climate

Ms. May Mak, Chief Financial Officer of Quam Plus Financial Group, said at the opening remark “Our investors are more than financiers; they are our partners who share our vision and support our growth. We value their trust and understand the significance of transparent and considerate relationships. This is why investor relations plays a crucial role in fostering transparency, trust, and effective communication between our company and its investors.”  

Dr. Army Yan, Chief Investment Officer of Quam Plus Financial Group, said “2023 was another turmoil year for the Hong Kong market amidst continuing geo-political conflict. PRC policy changes and high interest rate. While all other major markets recorded increases in 2023, HSI was down 13.8%. In the times of market uncertainty, the role of IR becomes even more vital.” He then commended all the award winners, saying “Relaxation of southbound stock connect and increasing interest from the west have seen our market rebounded. The share price of all of our winners have performed well. Together, let us forge ahead, embracing the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.”
