With an increasing number of internet users moving away from traditional internet channels like desktop computers and towards mobile-only use, app usage data can offer hugely valuable insights into consumer behaviour and company performance through a variety of key performance metrics.
Alternative data is an asset class of information that has come into being off the back of the broader data explosion. Traditional financial data relies on information from company filings, investor presentations, media coverage, historical market prices, etc, which are now commoditized and easily accessible on financial databases. Alternative data can come from a plethora of sources, including satellite imagery, GPS tracking, transactional data, sentiment analysis of social media and news feed, etc.
Like most forms of ESG analysis, governance analysis has traditionally relied almost exclusively on self-reported information, or metrics derived from self-report information. This reliance on self-reported information is likely even greater when it comes to the topic of governance given that there is a lot of governance data already available. For the most part, companies are obligated to publish a lot of information that is relevant to governance analysis, such as board composition, executive compensation, shareholder rights, and audit and oversight information. Section 1 discusses datasets for analysing Corporate Governance, and the subtopics of the board, pay, ownership and control, and accounting. Section 2 provides a deep dive on the topic of corporate behavior, encompassing the subtopics of business ethics, anti-competitive practices, corruption and instability, financial system instability, and tax transparency. Finally, in Section 3 we explore other alternative data approaches to governance analysis, most notably environmental risks scoring and AI & NLP techniques for governance analysis.
