Feb 18 14
Institutional Shareholder Services Inc. launched QuickScore 2.0, the next generation of its global corporate governance scoring solution for institutional investors. ISS Governance QuickScore 2.0 is designed to help investors identify and measure corporate governance risk within their portfolio companies. QuickScore 2.0 provides a score for each company in its coverage universe that measures the company's level of corporate governance risk both overall and based on four broad pillars: board structure, compensation/remuneration, shareholder rights, and audit. Scoring is similar to the previous iteration of QuickScore in that it provides a numeric score that indicates a company's corporate governance risk. Scores range from 1 to 10, with a score of 1 indicating relatively lower governance risk and a score of 10 indicating relatively higher governance risk. Companies receive an overall score and scores across the aforementioned four pillars. Importantly, QuickScore 2.0 subscribers have the ability to access and analyze the underlying data from which the scores are generated, allowing them to screen portfolio companies against hundreds of corporate governance factors or perform detailed side by side comparisons of two or more companies' data profiles.
