The Eversheds Board Report: The effective board is a major new study into global boardroom composition and culture, investigating how board structures are changing.
In this 2013 Eversheds Board Report, we have once again sought to provide insight into what makes an effective board. The 2011 Eversheds Board Report investigated whether board composition affects the share price performance of some of the largest companies across the globe, covering the period from 2007 to 2009. This new Report updates and expands our original findings and involves a close analysis of the share price performance of over 500 top companies in Europe, the US, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Brazil between 2011 and 2012 to investigate the characteristics of global boardrooms. It also reflects in-depth interviews with 85 senior board members from around the world.
