Does Relative Performance of Socially Responsible Investing Increase With Financial Risk?

Paweł Śliwiński , Maciej Łobza


The research paper positively verified the research hypothesis that the relative financial performance of investments in socially responsible indices against the performance of conventional indices may go up as the global financial risk, measured by the VIX index, increases. Socially Responsible Investing can be rational from the financial point of view. In addition to the ethical aspect, it may fulfill the function of protecting the investment portfolio in periods characterized by a high level of global risk. The hypothesis was tested using statistical research based on a comparative portfolio analysis of the geographically diverse SRI indices (RESPECT Index and DJSI) against the reference points which were the territorially relevant conventional stock indices (WIG20TR and DJITR).
