A new SYRTO Working Paper by Peter Martey Addo is out.
In this study the author explores a “two–way” risk connection between the European banking and insurance
sector based on geometrical closeness of observations. Specifically, the study looks at the inter-system recurrence networks in tracing dynamical transitions and detecting coupling direction between these sectors.
A new SYRTO Working Paper by Michele Costola and Massimiliano Caporin is out.
In this work, the authors present a rational learner agent, which considers the information coming from a behavioral counterpart during the allocation process.
The authors support their methodological framework with an empirical analysis including all the assets present in the NASDAQ and NYSE stock exchange from September 1977 to December 2014.

The second SYRTO Policy Brief is now available online.
During the first two years we studied several issues concerning systemic risk in the European Union. See our second Policy Brief that describes how econometric tools in modelling and managing systemic risk can be linked with policy advices for effective macroprudential regulation in the EU.
On April 1st the SYRTO Project, jointly with the Department of Economics and Management of the University of Brescia, organises the Seminar Understanding Excessive Risk Taking Seen in Experiments on Financial Markets.
