Corporate governance assessments are an integral part of company research. They can be an indicator of how well a company identifies material environmental and social factors and manages associated risks and opportunities. However, incorporating governance information into investment decision-making poses challenges, as there is an abundance of publicly available data. But there is little clarity on which of those measures may be linked to performance, or the impact the rules and practices of different countries may have on those links. The latter is especially relevant as responsible investing becomes an increasingly global phenomenon.
