Further, Barney (1991) argues that four characteristics define whether firm resources are capable of generating sustainable competitive advantage. e. imperfect imitability), and 4) non-substitutable (meaning that there exists no strategically equivalent valuable resource that fulfills the same function) (Barney, 1991: 105–112; Barney and Hesterly, 1996: 134; Priem and Butler, 2001: 25). Building on Barney's (1991) VRIN (valuable, rare, imperfectly imitable, non-substitutable) framework, it is argued that the first two characteristics are each necessary but not sufficient conditions for competitive advantage, while the latter two are each necessary but not sufficient for sustainability of an existing competitive advantage (Priem and Butler, 2001: 25).

In contrast to the causal ambiguity characteristic, it is known what drives the firm's outperformance. However, the ability to actively manage these resources is limited. Examples of such socially complex resources are a firm's reputation among various stakeholders, a firm's culture, or the teamwork among employees (Barney, 1991: 107–111; Barney and Hesterly, 1996: 134). Originally developed to improve understanding about the strategy and (out) performance of the firm, recent pieces of literature show that the RBV is related to the financial policy of the firm.

Hedging systematic risks, on the other hand, will not affect firm value as long as the risk, either borne by the firm or the capital market, is correctly priced. Under this condition, a hedging activity would only move the firm along the security market line and not change the value of the firm. Any management's hedging activity influencing the diversifiable risk is then undesirable from a shareholder perspective. Since these risks are not compensated by the CAPM, a change in the firm's exposure to these risks does not end up with a lower discount rate if, and only if, the owners hold well-diversified portfolios (Smith, 1995: 24; Peavy, 1984: 153).
