New Sector Data and High Net Worth Enhancements for BoardEx users 

We’re excited to share two new enhancements to the BoardEx data. 


Increased the number of companies covered by Sector information by approximately 50%  

In February of 2023 we had 540,000 companies with sector data and that number has now increased to 813,000 companies. This will improve your use of Advanced Search when searching for companies in a particular sector.  

This enhancement has been possible by using our sister company RelSci’s data to compliment the data already available in BoardEx.  


Added the 2022 Wealth-X Very/Ultra High Net Worth (VHNW or UHNW) achievements to profiles  


We’ve now added labels to 72,000 individual profiles, recognizing that they are VHNW or UHNW in 2022. These labels will be displayed under achievement details of an individual’s profile and will also be searchable using the keyword filter in Advanced Search.  


Here’s how we qualify individuals of High-Net Worth:  


Confirmed UHNW: When an individual’s net worth exceeds $30 million.  

Likely UHNW: When Wealth-X has performed a partial valuation and identified assets that range from $20-$30 million.   

Confirmed VHNW: When an individual’s net worth exceeds $30 million.  

Likely VHNW: When Wealth-X has performed: a full valuation and determined Net Worth to range from $5-30 million; a partial valuation and identified assets that range from $2-$5 million.   


This enhancement has been possible by using our sister company Wealth-X’s data to compliment the data already available in BoardEx.

Access Historical Data on Board and Leadership Teams

June 18, 2021

You can now access an expanded view of an organization’s past employment roles filtered by year and month.

What does that mean?

This release allows users to approach their research with a new level of granularity to identify the specific Executive Directors, Non-Executive Directors, Leadership Team and/or Senior Management team members present during a specific time in history.

How can I use this to strengthen my research?

Being able to understand the landscape of an organization’s Board and Senior Management teams at a particular point in history is a powerful tool. While the information is available in the public, the amount of time it takes to construct this type of landscape on your own is lengthy and opens the potential for error when the data isn’t thoroughly reviewed or validated.

The good news is, you can mitigate for these challenges by leveraging the quality of BoardEx data via our relationship capital software platform that maps it out for you, in just a few clicks.

Need to confirm Senior Management employment history for your next executive search? Curious to know the key members of a significant M&A transaction from years back to help shape your outreach?
