“GOLD 100” is not intended to rank business entities, but is devised to be a selection of the leading business entities. As such, the list would be published in alphabetical order. The businesses must fulfill two levels of selection criteria:

  1. The first is a set of basic conditions that businesses must fulfill in order to qualify for the list. All businesses fulfilling these conditions are then evaluated for selection to the final list.
  2. The second is the criteria set out for the evaluation of businesses.


Below is the basic checklist of requirements that businesses must fulfill.

  1. Must be a registered corporate entity.
    One of the essential features of The Gold List is that it is a selection of corporate entities. Therefore, individual business owners are excluded from the list regardless of their scale of operation.
  2. Must be a Maldivian business.
    All entities on the list will be registered in the Maldives. This does not include foreign companies and partnerships re-registered in the Maldives.
  3. Must be registered on or before 1st January 2015
    This is to ensure that entities on the list are established and in the business for at least 5 years.
  4. Must have annual revenue of more than MVR 15 million
    In order to verify the scale of operation of entities on the list, this criterion is set to enable the verification of their revenue through the audited financial statements. The entity must have revenue of MVR 15 million during the financial year 2020.


Businesses fulfilling the criteria set above would be evaluated based on the following:

  1. The scale of Business Operations
    – Volume of sales
    – Number of employees
    – Number of business activities
    – Geographical spread
  2. Success
