A new SYRTO Working Paper by Francisco Blasques, Siem Jan Koopman, Andre Lucas and Julia Schaumburg is now available online.
The authors introduce a new model for time-varying spatial dependence adopted to empirically investigate the spatial dependence between eight European sovereign CDS spreads over the period 2009–2014, which includes the European sovereign debt crisis.
Loukia Meligkotsidou, Ekaterini Panopoulou, Ioannis D.Vrontos, Spyridon D. Vrontos have a new SYRTO Working Paperout.
In their work, the authors propose a quantile regression approach to equity premium forecasting. Their approach using a time-varying weighting scheme delivers statistically and economically signi cant out-of-sample forecasts relative to both the historical average benchmark and the combined predictive mean regression modeling approach.
Michele Costola, research fellow at the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, presented the goals and the infrastructure of the SYRTO project data center at the SYRTO Code Workshop (Frankfurt – July, 2 2014).
On July 2, 2014, the SYRTO project team organized a workshop on systemic risk policy issues in Frankfurt, together with Bundesbank, ECB, and ESRB. The aim of the workshop was to discuss with researchers and experts the main provisional results of the SYRTO project, and to select the most relevant topics for the SYRTO Code.
