The aim of this study is to identify the relationship between firm value and performance and executive remuneration. In general, the literature suggests that firms with executive higher remuneration tend to have better value and performance in comparison with companies with lower remuneration. We analyze a unique Brazilian database to test this hypothesis. The analysis of 420 Brazilian companies from 2002 to 2009 indicates a positive and significant relation between executive remuneration and firm value (price-to-book), suggesting that companies that pay better executive remuneration have higher value. On the other hand, there is no significant relation between executive remuneration and operational performance (ROA and sales growth).
