The answer is yes – for small and mid-caps, says PIRC
‘We want to understand what the key factors are that change a company’s [corporate governance] rating within our model from E to A,’ says Alan MacDougall, managing director and founder of Pensions & Investment Research Consultants (PIRC), at the corporate governance and shareholder advisory consultant’s recent seminar.
He was talking about the governance risk rating model that PIRC, which advises institutional investors with assets in excess of £1.5 tn ($2.2 tn), has developed, rating companies across UK, US and European developed market indices from A for good governance to E at the lowest end of the governance spectrum.
