Ampersand Advisory listed amongst Asia Pacific Top 500 high growth companies by Financial Times

Award-winning independent consultagency Ampersand Advisory has been listed by the Financial Times in its ranking of the top 500 High Growth Companies in Asia Pacific 2023.

In the ranking, which was released online today, 17 Malaysian companies featured. These include Flower Chimp, Straits Energy, Signature Market, Sophic Automation, MediSavers and others.

Ampersand Advisory was the 5th fastest growing Malaysian company, and the highest ranked player from Malaysia in the Advertising and Marketing industry. Influasia, an influencer marketing company was the only other entrant from this industry.

Over the period of 2018-2021, Ampersand Advisory grew at 190%, and its compounded annual rate of growth was 42%

This is the third company with the involvement and investment of Tan Sri Vincent Lee that has qualified for this annual ranking. In previous years, Carsome and Soft Space have both made this listing.

Co-founder and CEO Sandeep Joseph said, “We’re delighted, honoured and humbled to make this list. I’ve been a dedicated reader of the Financial Times for years, and it’s slightly surreal to be featured here.

This is a highly credible news source, and along with Statista they conduct detailed analysis to determine who should make the cut.

The fact that we feature is testimony to the focus, hard work and innovation by our 60+ staff. The period under study includes the pandemic, and even when working from home we emerged stronger and united through this trying time.

Personally,  I owe a great deal to Tan Sri Vincent Lee, for his unwavering support and sage wisdom. The fact that we’re not his first company to make the list shows he knows how to pick his investments!”

Joseph added, “This recognition spurs us to re-dedicate ourselves to our clients, and reminds us to continue to live up to our tagline of delivering ‘business results now!’ for them.”
