This research evaluates whether firms managed by female CEOs exhibit an equal level of financial performance and are less risky than firms with male CEOs. The sample consists of manufacturing firms from 2010 to 2012. The results show that firms managed by female CEOs have better financial performance but higher risk levels, the latter probably resulting from their growth.
