ISS ESG: Governance QualityScore

An objective, point-in-time, data-driven tool that helps investment professionals


The ISS ESG Governance QualityScore is an objective, point-in-time, data-driven tool that helps investment professionals measure and identify areas of corporate risk in Board Structure, Compensation programs, Shareholder Rights, and Audit & Risk Oversight. Company-level scores provide an indication of relative governance quality based on an evaluation of approximately 100 of 230 total factors that are most relevant to a given country or region.

  • Integrate non-financial data into fundamental investment processes so risks and opportunities are automatically included as part of the research mosaic.
  • Identify and target portfolio companies that have poor governance practices, construct portfolios around governance, and leverage governance issues effectively when making investment decisions.
  • Better understand a company’s approach to governance over time with historical scores and data that can provide greater context and help to uncover trends, through the point-in time nature of the feed.
