Data Collection

NRG Metrics Data Collection Procedures

NRG Metrics maintains only the highest degree of data quality. We implement a combination of quality control measures. NRG Metrics employ expert analysts to manually enter, review, and cross check data with senior analysts, who often perform random audits. Customized software programs control all levels of data entry procedure for inconsistencies and errors.


Annual Report Collection

Annual reports are generally obtained directly from the companies. Each month, appropriate requests are sent to companies based on various factors including the previous years’ report dates, the update priority and the planned report release date. When reports are received, companies are processed according to their relevant update priority. In each listed company we use the appropriate report according to our experience from previous years (Annual Report, Corporate Governance Report, Financial Statements, 20F, Proxy Statement, Reference Document etc.).


Data Entry

Our analysts, by using different tools, collect the necessary data from the Annual Reports. Every data collection analyst undergoes a rigorous training program. In addition to that, numerous automated and manual error checks prevent the entry of suspicious data into the system. The duration of this procedure is usually 6-7 months every year.



The third step of the data collection procedure is the control of the data. NRG Metrics has created a customized software programme that traces all the inconsistencies and errors.
