Our colleagues published in the Journal of Financial Econometrics


Our colleagues Jozef Baruník and Tomáš Křehlík published an article Measuring the Frequency Dynamics of Financial Connectedness and Systemic Risk  in the Journal of Financial Econometrics.


The authors propose a new framework for measuring connectedness among financial variables that arise due to heterogeneous frequency responses to shocks. To estimate connectedness in short-, medium-, and long-term financial cycles, the authors introduce a framework based on the spectral representation of variance decompositions. In an empirical application, authors document the rich time-frequency dynamics of volatility connectedness in U.S. financial institutions. Economically, periods in which connectedness is created at high frequencies are periods when stock markets seem to process information rapidly and calmly, and a shock to one asset in the system will have an impact mainly in the short term. When the connectedness is created at lower frequencies, it suggests that shocks are persistent and are being transmitted for longer periods.
