“Responsible Minus Irresponsible (RMI) - A determinant of equity risk premia?”

“Responsible Minus Irresponsible (RMI) - A determinant of equity risk premia?”

This study is a novel approach to explain the relationship between ESG and financial performance. It adopts a new method for constructing an ESG-size portfolio that eliminates the inherent correlation between size and ESG. This is a zero initial investment portfolio which goes long in responsible companies and short in irresponsible companies, called” Responsible Minus Irresponsible” (RMI). The findings suggest that ESG represents a pricing anomaly but does not act as an independent risk factor that can be used to in Asset Pricing Theory. During the Corona crisis, the RMI portfolio produced on average negative returns.

THE CHOICES OF

Zona de Impacto: Mentalities evolved; however, women are still discriminated in the job market. Why?

Statistics are known. Women have a higher qualification rate than men, but they receive less (for the same jobs) and are more precarious. When it is time to reach roles of responsibility, they have a harder life (and, as the companies get bigger, the worse it is). The topic is old, solutions take a long time to produce effects, and this worries the youth. Marta Everard and Rita Mendes, students at NovaSBE and members of the club Women on Board, explain how they perceive their labor’s future
