ISS Enhances Methodology for Governance QualityScore
The Governance QualityScore methodology will be enhanced to provide users with deeper actionable insights, particularly in the areas of board composition and controversies. Notably, ISS has created a new Diversity subcategory to better distinguish companies with significant diversity on their board and among named executive officers (NEOs).
ISS released updates to its 2019 benchmark proxy voting policies for the Americas, EMEA, and Asia-Pacific regions. The updated policies will generally be applied for shareholder meetings on or after Feb. 1, 2019.
The DataDesk Custom Ratings tool allows users to quickly and efficiently develop custom environmental, social, governance (ESG) scoring models based on near-time DataDesk content. Users have full control over model customization, including weights and scoring, content inclusion and creating groupings from over 500 factors, defining comparator companies.
