This paper examines the post-1963 value premium by employing a model that captures the time-varying total risk of the valueminus-growth portfolios. Our results show that the conditional variance model incorporating timevarying idiosyncratic risk can fully capture the post-1963 value premium. The conclusion is robust to the criterion used to sort stocks into value and growth portfolios, to the inclusion of the size premium into the conditional asset pricing model, and to the country under review (US and UK). Our paper therefore adds to the debate on the possible role of idiosyncratic risk in explaining equity returns.
