01 August 2013, Pasay City, Philippines. SM Investments Corporation (SM) bagged this year’s Company of the Year Award from the Fund Managers Association of the Philippines (FMAP).
Based on the FMAP Banks and Brokers Poll, SM was voted by FMAP member institutions in line with its advocacy of promoting good corporate governance and minority shareholder protection among listed companies. The awarding ceremonies were held on July 25, 2013 during the 2013 FMAP Awards and Fellowship Night in Makati.
Last March 2013, SM hosted a conference for FMAP to brief its members with regard to the full-year 2012 results and future plans not just of the conglomerate, but also of its listed companies which included SM Prime Holdings Inc., SM Development Corp., BDO Unibank, China Banking Corp., and Atlas Consolidated Mining & Development Corporation.
The conference was attended by more than 80 domestic fund managers who interacted with the senior executives of SM and its subsidiaries.

Its membership has steadily grown over years of participation in activities largely aimed at informing and thereby protecting the investing public as well as espousing the interests of concerned government agencies.
