Asia's best managed companies: Part 2

FinanceAsia reveals the second batch of results from its annual poll to find Asia's best managed companies. Today: Hong Kong, Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore.

For the 16th year FinanceAsia has asked investors for their views on which listed companies around Asia they consider to be the best managed, with the best senior executives and the best policies around dividend payments and other matters.

FinanceAsia received responses from 129 portfolio managers and buy-side analysts from around the world, running mandates that included, or were dedicated to, Asian listed companies. We thank participants for their votes.

Today we release the results for Hong Kong, Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore. More country results will be dsplayed throughout the week and we will also publish the list of best companies by sector.

For the first batch of results, covering China, Taiwan and the Philippines, click here. For last year's winners, see here, here and here.
