Investors are concerned that companies demonstrate strong and ethical governance. In ESG investing, governance features as a critical indicator for risk management. Good corporate governance is served (or threatened) by several inter-related functions (board composition, independence & renewal, executive compensation, equality, transparency, hiring & tendering policies, legal compliance safeguards, and proper disclosure of political contributions). Increasingly, board diversity (or lack thereof) is understood by investors to have material impacts on company performance.
