The professionalism of the team members of TOCAR is much stronger than that of its competitors in many aspects. Most staff members of rating agencies are analysts only while TOCAR's team consists of qualified company secretary with the professional designations such as fellow (FCIS) or associate (ACIS) of the Institute Chartered Secretaries and Administrators and fellow (FCS) or associate (ACS) of the Hong Kong Institute of Company Secretaries, they are recognized professions in U.K. and Hong Kong with the focus on board procedures, company law, listing rules and corporate administration. Some of them are qualified accountants or lawyers in China, Hong Kong, United States of America and United Kingdom.
TOCAR's team members possessed working substantial experience gained from working for companies of various size and disciplines in both Hong Kong and China including many famous corporations while staff members of other rating agencies generally have relatively few commercial experience. This enables TOCAR's team to have an in-depth understanding of the practical aspect of CG and can answer why other rating agencies limit their services to diagnosis while TOCAR can take one step further to provide the full solutions.
   TOCAR  Other Rating Agents
 Nature of Rating  Organization  Separate Company  Most were done by the  same team. Only one is  conducted by a  separate unit
Unlike other rating agencies, TOCAR is an independent company with an independent board and advisory committee to run the CG business solely. Other rating agencies perform CG rating as part of their credit rating program or by the same team, in both cases, the CG rating team is in fact under the control of the same management of the credit rating company and may result in conflicts of interest. For instance, is it possible for a high score in CG while low in credit score if both rating services are provided by the same rating company?
  TOCAR will build up its own benchmarking, market studies and other ground work which serves as a set of criteria covering principal areas for proven effectively analyzing and quantifying CG:

 Analysis Services  Yes  Yes
 Consultation Services  Yes  No
 Execution Services  Yes  No
 Report in English  Yes  Yes
