Rivel’s Corporate Governance Intelligence Council is the only program of its kind that combines a 360-degree perspective from all your constituents – the global buy-side, proxy voters, senior management, investor relations and the corporate secretary – to derive what is best-in-class corporate governance.
Long viewed as separate silos, governance and investor outreach are rapidly converging. It is clear that governance practices are now a significant driver of investment decisions made by portfolio managers. While at the same time a rapidly evolving regulatory environment is leading to a democratization of the corporate boardroom which is changing the way investors make and manage proxy voting decisions. As such, company management is being encouraged to find better ways to communicate and engage with investors on a broader range of issues than ever before. Engagement encourages companies to take a different look at performance and how it is measured and rewarded. It holds management, board members and investors alike, accountable.
Just as engagement is an on-going process, so too is corporate governance. For both engagement and governance to be effective they must be predicated on gaining an accurate and detailed understanding of the perspectives and expectations of the investment community. By gaining actionable insight based on in-depth measures of the global investment community companies are able to better identify and communicate their specific value proposition.
Traditionally, you would call a range of advisors to gain information. The Rivel Corporate Governance Intelligence Council is changing this dynamic by providing you with reliable, actionable data from an unprecedented global network of governance professionals and institutional investors. Via an interactive platform members help select the issues to be examined, share experiences and are able to assess the effectiveness of their outreach. Rivel’s consultative analyses facilitates the formulation of board and management strategy.

Restricted to corporate secretary, general counsel and shareholder communication and governance executives, the Council combines the experiences and knowledge of its membership with insights derived from Rivel’s historical and constantly updating buy-side, proxy voting and corporate research databases.
