As I wrote last week, ISS has launched a new corporate governance ranking system, Governance QuickScore. ISS announced today that the data verifications website is now up and available for companies to review and verify the corporate governance data that ISS has on file. The website is www.issgovernance.com/quickscore. Companies can access the data verification section under the Data Verification tab (companies must have a log-in ID to access).
Here’s ISS’s timeline for implementing Governance QuickScore:
|January 28||Data review and verification site opens for companies to review their data against the Governance QuickScore factors.
|February 15||Data review and verification site closes (although the site will open again and remain open after QuickScores are calculated and released in late February/early March)
|Late Feb/early Mar||ISS Governance QuickScore launches. Governance QuickScores are applied to all 4100 companies in the coverage universe. We anticipate a Governance QuickScore launch date on or around February 25, but will confirm/update that date in subsequent communications.
