Created by the ASEAN Capital Markets Forum, ACGS is an instrument for assessing and ranking publicly-listed and insurance companies in six participating ASEAN countries of Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam in their commitment to sound corporate governance. Its rigorous methodology, benchmarked against international best practices, provides foreign investors with comparable information from which to base their investment decision-making process. The ACGS was launched in 2011 as one of the initiatives for the ASEAN economic integration.
Sun Life Grepa had previously received an ACGS award in 2018.
