On December 2021, HSC has been awarded “Top 5 Best Corporate Governance Companies” in the framework of "Vietnam Listed Company Awards 2021”, which was jointly organized by State Securities Commission (SSC), Hochiminh Stock Exchange (HOSE), Hanoi Stock Exchange (HNX) and Vietnam Investment Review (VIR). The Vietnam Listed Company Awards 2021 honored excellent companies in three categories: outstanding annual reports, corporate governance awards, and sustainability reporting awards. This is the 5th times HSC awarded “Best Corporate Governance Companies”
In 2021, the Award’s judges have set higher standards to evaluate and encourage the improvement of the professionalism, transparency, and information transferability of the Annual Report, Corporate Governance Report, Financial Report and Sustainability Report with the aim of enhancing the investors' access to information. This year's set of corporate governance assessment criteria is not only based on the Annual Report but also evaluates other official sources of information disclosure.
Most of the judges assessed that Covid-19 was a test of companies’ risk management strategy. As one of the leading financial institutions, HSC's Annual Report always fully discloses how to manage important risks such as finance, accounting, internal control, operations, information technology, etc. At HSC, the corporate governance system is built with following goals: transparency, financial stability and maximizing value for shareholders, which are achieved by applying best corporate governance practices.
