What data do you provide?

ISS Director Data allows investors to access non-traditional information at a board level and provide a deeper look into the boardroom, generating a complete picture of board-level decision makers and inform new investment ideas.

Examining a director’s profile for key experiences can help investors determine if directors possess qualifications necessary for a given board, or to uncover potential investment risks and opportunities in a portfolio. Data may also signal possible management changes, mergers, acquisitions, or boardroom turnover.

  • Biographical
  • Boards
  • Skills/Background
