Red Herringâs Top 100 Asia list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.
âChoosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,â said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. âAfter rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across Asia to the Top 100 Winners. We believe AG Delta embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. AG Delta should be proud of its accomplishment with the AGCapital TM Solution, as the competition was very strong.â
â It is an absolute honour to be presented this yearâs Red Herring 100 award. Red Herring has long been acknowledged by the industry for identifying companies offering highly disruptive technologies. The AGDelta team will continue to strive to be at the cutting edge when offering the best Wealth Management Electronic Trading experience for our customers. The convergence of Web2.0 , mobile device and analytical technologies combined with our high performance multi product trading architecture has enabled us to build the next generation Amazon.com for Wealth Investment Products. We believe our solution offering will revolutionise the way Banks provide global wealth transactional services to their customers â said Andrew Au, CEO and co-founder at AGDelta.
The Red Herringâs team evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the âbuzzâ and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in Asia.
