Corporate Governance Research

SES is at the forefront of governance thought leadership and provides cutting edge corporate governance research to the investment community. We conduct in-depth and robust analysis to identify governance issues plaguing companies, transactions, sectors and even the broader markets.

We analyze complex corporate transactions such as mergers, demergers, royalty payments and other related party transactions with a critical eye, identify any governance issues in the transactions and provide recommendations to increase the fairness and transparency of the deal for all stakeholders. Clients can use our reports to engage with boards and management and air their concerns over the proposed transactions, if any.

We also conduct topical research to provide insights on key trends in the corporate governance space, highlight issues faced by companies and provide a way forward. We also critique new regulations / guidelines proposed in India (and globally) and provide our recommendations on how the regulatory framework can be further strengthened.

We conduct in-depth analysis of governance framework of listed companies to highlight governance issues & improvement opportunities. Our analysis highlights governance risks in the Company and raises red flags over impending business and financial issues. Our reports allow investors to assess long term performance potential of current/ potential investments and allow lenders to accurately assess the risks involved in their debt investment.
