DFNN: Best IT Corporate Governance Philippines 2020


Calvin Lim DFNN CEO

CEO: Calvin Lim

As the world becomes more tech dependent, innovative IT solutions are vital for a competitive edge. In the Philippines, DFNN has solidified its position as a leader in the field over the past two decades. Its executive team has domain expertise in financial services, regulatory compliance, software development, systems integration and turn-key digital implementations. DFNN’s governance code reflects its core values of integrity, teamwork, service and something the locals call malasakit. The Filipino word loosely translates to “empathy” and underscores the company’s commitment to stakeholder engagement and community focus. DFNN incorporates stakeholder concerns into the decision-making process and has a dedicated team to focus on corporate governance. The company, which is traded on the Philippine Stock Exchange, uses the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a guideline for continuous improvement. Over the past three years, it has made steady advances in the number of SDG recommendations completed, from 107 in 2017 to 161 last year. It has adopted environmental sustainability measures that are designed to deliver maximum growth for the company and its stakeholders — and ensure the responsible use of natural resources. DFNN recognises the fragile interdependence that exists between business and society. It seeks to establish stakeholder relationships that bring mutual benefit, and supports community development via education, healthcare and livelihood programmes. The CFI.co judging panel is pleased to present DFNN with the 2020 award for Best IT Corporate Governance (Philippines).
