Inspiring trust through insight: Integrated Reporting in Malaysia

A 2015 <IR> benchmarking analysis

An analysis of the reporting by Bursa Malaysia’s Top 50 companies

PwC Malaysia recently conducted a benchmarking analysis of Bursa Malaysia’s Top 50 companies’ annual reports against the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC)’s Integrated Reporting Framework.

The benchmarking exercise was a follow-up to a pilot study last year, which surveyed Bursa Malaysia’s Top 30 companies.

For each of the companies comprising the Top 50, a detailed assessment of 110 questions was performed. The questions were based on the content elements for an integrated report based on the IIRC's Integrated Reporting Framework. Our assessment focused on the quality of the information that companies presented in key reporting documents and how well that information was integrated and linked together.

The resulting report themed 'Inspiring trust through insight’ indicated that there are significant opportunities for Corporate Malaysia to enhance transparency and improve stakeholder relationships through their reporting amidst an uncertain market environment, but companies are not capitalising on it.

Three themes emerged:

  • Siloed reporting is evident
  • Historical reporting remains the focus
  • ‘Copy and paste’ content from the previous year is the norm
