Abstract

This article reexamines the “doing well while doing good” debate within the financial management literature, using comparisons among socially responsible mutual funds (SRMF), the NYSE Composite Index, and a portfolio made up of firms most valued by SRMF managers (MostSRF). The performance of MostSRF did no better or no worse than the overall market or SRMF in three to five year comparisons. However, results from the ten-year performance comparison refute earlier studies and indicate that the market prices social responsibility character is tics in the long run. Given MostSRF out per formed the other two in dices in this time line, a new paradigm for understanding the impact of SRI is revealed.
