The Financial Times introduces FT 1000, a special report on high-growth companies in the Asia Pacific region, to be published in February 2018. Innovative and fast-growing companies are the driving force of the Asian Pacific economy in the 21st century. They generate jobs and sustain the region’s competitiveness.

This will be the first time that the Financial Times, in partnership with Statista will seek to identify the 1,000 Asian Pacific companies with a high growth between the years 2013 and 2016. They will be featured in a special report in a weekday edition of the Financial Times newspaper and on FT.com in February 2018. Potential candidates will be contacted by Statista or can put their name forward at this website.




The Financial Times and Statista retain the right to change the criteria and/or produce new criteria at any point in the project’s lifetime.

Why should my company participate?

New business opportunities: An inclusion in the list of the FT 1000 is a visible and public acknowledgement of your company’s performance that extends far beyond your specific industry and country. It will also generate attention for your business on the part of potential partners, customers, and investors around the world.

Employer branding: Corporate growth usually generates demand for new employees. Being featured in the high-profile ranking of the FT 1000 will not only increase awareness of you as an employer, it also gives potential employees an understanding of your company’s future potential.

Effective media coverage: The ranking will be covered in a special report, a supplement within a weekday edition of the FT newspaper and on FT.com. While the full ranking will be published online, FT reporters will focus on particularly interesting companies, sectors and trends in the articles of a special report that will appear in both print and on FT.com.

Reputation: All companies that make it into the list may use the award logo for marketing purposes.1

Access to more than one million facts: All participants that provide us with data on their revenue will receive a free two-week Statista Corporate Test-Account as a thank you – irrespective of whether or not they are among the top 1,000 companies.

1 The use of the label and the word-and-image logo “FT 1000 - High-Growth Companies in Asia Pacific 2018“ for marketing purposes is subject to a one-off payment of a licence fee. Inclusion in the ranking, however, is completely free of charge.
