M&E Stars Indexes

Demonstrating that solid human process drive stock performance

To demonstrate the effectiveness of the M&E Value From Human Factors method (formerly known as M&E Ratings), M&E ran two indexes in Brazil and Hong Kong. These "Stars Indexes" applied the M&E method in selecting and weighing their component companies. The Stars Indexes were operated in cooperation with Euromoney media in Latin American and Asia. Most importantly, the Brazil Stars Index consistently outperformed the Ibovespa between 60% and 70% over the period of 9 years. The Hong Kong Stars Index outperformed the Hang Seng by roughly 20% over a period of 4 years.
The approach employed in the M&E Stars Indexes is fundamentally different from other portfolio approaches in that it,

  • financially quantifies component companies according to their management performance (M&E rating score) and weigh them in the index´ according to this value,
  • includes fewer companies because the weighting according to management performance obviates having to diversity across numerous companies and sectors; risk is reduced because of high, sector adjusted management scores
  • has a higher predictive value because it uses management values which drive future financial performance.

Value From Human Factors

M&E is one of the only companies able to quantify the impact of human processes in companies and countries, and relate it to their risk levels and values. By how much will pilot training impact the financial value of an airline? How much is good governance worth in Dollars? By how much will a country´s educational level impact its risk level?
