Corporate governance resources
Effective corporate governance creates a safer, sounder corporate environment for companies, shareholders and auditors and builds trust and confidence in the capital markets.
In order to be effective and gain the confidence of investors, boards and management should be aware of investor priorities and emerging governance practices.
We offer balanced insights and data-rich content and analysis that foster alignment and bridges gaps among management, boards of directors and investors.
Our insights and content are supported through our proprietary corporate governance database, relationships with outside governance organizations and ongoing conversations with members of the investor and governance community.
We collect and analyze governance data for more than 3,000 of the largest publicly traded US companies. The data focuses on trends in board and committee composition and organization, including leadership structures, diversity and election procedures; executive compensation; proxy statement disclosure practices; and management and shareholder proposals and vote results.
Our library provides information on evolving issues and current topics of interest related to corporate governance.
