Enterprise risk management ({ERM)} has emerged as a construct that ostensibly overcomes limitations of silo-based traditional risk management ({TRM)}, yet little is known about its effectiveness. The scant research on the relationship between {ERM} and firm performance has offered mixed findings and has been limited by the lack of a suitable proxy for the degree of {ERM} implementation. Using Standard and Poor’s newly available risk management rating, the authors find evidence of a positive relationship between increasing levels of {TRM} capability and firm value but no additional increase in value for firms achieving a higher {ERM} rating. Considering these results, the authors suggest directions for future research.
