Rivel’s Corporate Governance Intelligence Council (CGIC) is the only program of its kind to combine a 360-degree perspective from all your constituents – the global buy-side, proxy voters, senior management, investor relations, ESG professionals and the corporate secretary – to derive what is best-in-class corporate governance and most suitable for your company.
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 on your company. By gaining actionable insight based on in-depth measures and analysis of the global investment community, companies are able to better identify and communicate their specific value proposition.
Members receive custom benchmarking and gain access to the most powerful and comprehensive governance library and database in the industry. This is coupled with year-round consulting for all governance and engagement initiatives.
Rivel’s consultative analyses translate the data into actionable intelligence, working with you to formulate focused board and management strategy, engagement and disclosure.
The Rivel Corporate Governance Intelligence Council is changing how companies approach governance engagement and communications by providing reliable, actionable data from an unprecedented global network of governance professionals and institutional investors.
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. With this perspective on investor and public-company perceptions and practices, the Council brings exclusive, research-validated intelligence to everyday corporate governance decision-making.

Are you focused on the right issues, the right stakeholders, the right frameworks and the right reporting agencies?
Understanding how to clearly communicate around an opaque and ever-changing issue can be challenging. At Rivel, we assist clients with navigating their corporate responsibility challenges the following ways:
