Presentation:

Financial Sector Linkages and the Dynamics of Bank and Sovereign Credit Spreads




Abstract

We show thatnancial linkages across borders are priced in the CDS markets. We construct a measure of the foreign exposure risk of a country's banking system using detailed information on the actual composition of its foreign exposures. Our measure helps explain CDS premia of banks. Implicit and explicit guarantees extended to a country's banking system in turn aect the CDS premia of the sovereign.

As a consequence, foreign exposures of banks impact the dynamics of sovereign CDS spreads. Another measure including both foreign and domestic assets of the banks is highly sign cant in explaining bank CDS spreads even before the onset of the crisis.
