We assist directors in their role as fiduciaries to their companies, guide compliance with laws, listing standards and regulations, and help organizations implement practical governance solutions that can go beyond meeting mere requirements.
We are broadly experienced in applying best board practices, and nationally recognized for our expertise in deploying corporate governance solutions ranging from advice on compensation and risk management to corporate governance. In addition to our own expertise, we have established relationships with a full range of experts, from risk management to legal and investor relations to involve in your situation as the situation warrants.

Cases in practical corporate governance:
For a fast growing financial services company, the Board Assets' diagnostic review helped directors and management identify misalignment between the current board and the new strategic direction. Board Assets counseled the Chair, CEO and Nominating/Corporate Governance Committee Chair in a transition process that resulted in a new board composition that better met the company's needs.
For a NYSE-listed company, Board Assets acted as an independent advisor to the board as they reviewed their corporate governance practices and complied with standards not required for another year. These services included assistance in customizing assessment tools for board and committee examinations. The result allowed them to better align their board and exceed investor corporate governance expectations.
For a closely held family company, Board Assets helped the founder create an effective board structure and composition to better address its changing needs.
For a specialty financial services company, Board Assets provided counsel over three years to help the board assess itself, help directors assess themselves and then use peer assessments to impact the director re-nomination process.
