Learn about ASX-listed companies in new ASX Corporate Profile video series.
Want to learn more about West African-focused gold explorer Azumah Resources or clean-tech company Algae.Tec? How about the iron ore company Grange Resources? These are just a few of more than 60 ASX-listed companies that have signed up for ASX’s new Corporate Profile series, which provides a short video interview to help companies inform investors.
Each three-minute video usually features a chief executive who explains their background and experience, and gives an overview of their company’s business and growth plans. This helps investors put a “face” to companies and learn more about those running the company on a day-to-day basis, in a simple, user-friendly format.
Corporate Profile video example
Corporate Profile was initially launched to small and mid-cap companies that might not be widely researched by sharebroking firms or covered regularly in the financial media. However, all ASX-listed companies can record a video and bring their story to life through Corporate Profile.
Corporate Profile is a joint initiative between ASX and Boardroom Radio (BRR), and is part of ASX’s broader efforts to help ASX-listed companies raise their profile in the Australian and overseas investment communities.
Each Corporate Profile video is distributed via the ASX website and through BRR’s distribution network, which includes The Australian online. The video remains live for 12 months. Early data suggests the videos are receiving good traffic and proving popular with investors.
ASX expects more companies to take advantage of Corporate Profile over the next 12 months. So keep an eye out for a Corporate Profile video next time you enter an ASX code for an ASX-listed company on the ASX website. Below is an example of how Corporate Profile appears.

Other videos are available through the popular ASX Spotlight Series, which showcases ASX-listed small and mid-cap companies at forums in Asia, London and the United States each year. You can download presentations from the ASX Small and Mid-caps Conference in Hong Kong and Singapore held earlier this year.
