SEOUL, Feb. 17 (Yonhap) -- South Korean chemical giant LG Chem Ltd. retained fourth place in a ranking of the world's most valuable chemicals brands, a British corporate valuation consultancy has said.

LG Chem's brand value is estimated at US$3.5 billion in the Brand Finance Chemicals 25 2020 ranking, compared with $3.33 billion in 2019, Brand Finance said in its annual report released in January.

Brand Finance said on its website that aside from determining overall brand value, it evaluates the relative strength of brands through a balanced scorecard of metrics on marketing investment, stakeholder equity and business performance.
