The glove manufacturer also clinched two additional top honours in the large market cap subcategory for Best Chief Financial Officer and Best Quality of Annual Reports.
Announced today, the awards, themed 'Reinvigorating Investor Relations in the New Normal', is organised by MIRA, the sole non-profit organisation for investor relations established under Bursa Malaysia.
Top Glove executive director Lim Cheong Guan, who was named Best Chief Financial Officer for Investor Relations, said winning these awards is a proud result of the dedication and commitment from the company's 22,000 strong workforce.
Guan said the company reaffirms its responsibility to maintain best practices in all aspects of investor relations, corporate management and governance.
Lim, a five-time winner of the Best CFO for IR award, also noted that as the global business environment evolves at an intense pace, investors are requesting updated information from companies on environmental, social and governance (ESG) best practices.
"Top Glove, as the world's largest manufacturer of gloves, will continue to proactively engage with stakeholders to strengthen continued trust and confidence in the company's management," he said.

In addition to assessing the established criteria, the awards judging this year also factored in how companies have been navigating around the crisis while setting strategies and direction in rebuilding their businesses.
The award recipients are scored based on a 60:40 weightage system split between stakeholders voting and diagnostic assessments involving a series of qualitative and quantitative indicators.
