BOQ “Best Mid Cap Company in Australia”

Wednesday, 02/01/2008 

Bank of Queensland has been named the Best Mid Cap Company in Australia by Asiamoney magazine. 

Asiamoney is a well-regarded finance magazine based out of Hong Kong, and the Award forms part of the magazine’s Best Managed Companies poll for 2007. 

In selecting the winner, the editorial team look at a variety of factors including:

  • the opinion of fund managers, commentators, and other analysts in the financial community,
  • transparency,
  • shareholder responsibility,
  • strategy,
  • business model, and
  • financials.  

BOQ Managing Director David Liddy said he was delighted to see BOQ recognised outside of its home country. 

“BOQ has grown from a small regional bank in 2001 to Australia’s fastest growing bank with branches in every state and territory in 2007 and it’s great to see that this achievement is being noticed outside Australia. 

“We’re looking forward to another strong year in 2008.” 

Last year’s winner of the Best Mid Cap Company in Australia award was Toll Holdings.
