FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE:FCN) has announced the release of its India Disclosure Index 2023 report, which tracks corporate disclosure practices amongst India's 100 leading publicly listed corporations.

FTI Consulting analyzed public information from annual reports, using 18 disclosure parameters and applying them to the Nifty 100 Index to create the India Disclosure Index 2023 report. The 18 disclosure parameters were divided into two groups to measure Leadership and Governance Quality and Risk Disclosure Quality.

Commenting on the India Disclosure Index 2023 report, Amrit Singh Deo, Senior Managing Director in the Strategic Communications segment at FTI Consulting and author of the report, said, "The India Disclosure Index report helps companies measure how they fare on leadership and governance, as well as risk disclosure. Post-lockdown, companies have had to refresh enterprise strategies, improve risk management and demonstrate resilience by focusing on talent retention and mitigating risks related to climate change, cyber and supply chain. Investors and regulators are demanding more demonstrable, metrics-based progress on these parameters from companies. A higher standard of voluntary disclosure is a good proxy for governance and leadership as well as risk management."
