Magni is the global leader in country-level research on corporate governance. Magni’s Sustainable Wealth Creation principles, based on widely accepted economic concepts, were developed by researching the accounting, legal, regulatory, adjudicative, and economic infrastructures of the investible countries around the world. Our extensive database goes back over 16 years and contains analysis across 280 qualitative factors on the honesty and transparency of governance across these countries.
Magni scores and ranks countries on their ability to provide an environment conducive to effective corporate governance, and uses this information to construct international portfolios through its proprietary Country Selection Technique.
Magni also has a Corporate Governance Assessment which has taken the research methods used on good country-level governance and applied that to a best practices model for corporate governance, thus creating the Sustainable Value Creation principles. These principles analyze 316 qualitative factors on each company. Magni goes beyond assessing each company’s relationship with its shareholders and employees; we also assess the relationship with customers, suppliers, competitors, and communities in which the company operates. This approach provides a holistic analysis of governance that includes the social aspects of ESG investing. The assessments are the basis for Magni’s secular as well as faith-based portfolios of U.S. companies.
