Quantitative Evaluations

Riskon performs quantitative board level governance audits through a combination of public document research and personal interviews. Several hundred data points are collected and filtered through a decision tree matrix analysis. This data is compared to normative statements of best practice in an effort to highlight specific elements that trail, meet or exceed governance best practice guidelines. For example, if the normative statement were that a board’s Audit Committee should be comprised of 100% non-executive independent directors and the results of the audit find that the current committee is only 60% independent, then this would be considered a trailing indicator of compliance. It is important to note that the quantitative audit highlights non-subjective gaps.
