“This initiative is about giving the largest public-listed companies in Singapore special recognition and coverage, and shining a light on their performance with relatively straightforward financial metrics,” says Ben Paul, editor of The Edge Singapore. “We see this exercise as a natural extension of what we do as a newspaper… a very investor-oriented approach to our reporting of the local corporate sector.”
