project duration
01-OCT-08 – 30-SEP-12
In this project we research whether Financial variables, in particular the returns on financial assests and their volatility, are driven by macro economical determinants, possibly controlled for the institutional environment. More specifically research is done on how shocks in the macro economy transfer into financial variables like stock returns, interst rates, exchange rates and their volatility.
