题目: Credit Risk Spillovers among Financial Institutions around the Global Credit Crisis: Firm-Level Evidence 演讲者:Jian Yang,Associate Professor of Finance,University of Colorado Denver 时间: 2011年7月1日(星期五)3:00—4:30PM 地点: 嘉庚二501 参加者: 对财务研究有兴趣的广大师生 主持人: 崔展文老师 论文简介: With an international dataset of credit default spreads as a credit risk measure, we propose a novel empirical framework to identify the structure of credit risk network across major financial institutions around the recent 2007-2008 global credit crisis. The findings directly shed light on credit risk transmission in a financial network and indirectly help find systemically important financial institutions from the perspective of interconnectedness. Specifically, we are able to identify three groups of players including primary senders, exchange centers and prime receivers of credit risk information on the credit market. Further analysis shows that leverage ratios and certain aspect of corporate governance (i.e., CEO duality) may be significant determinants of identified different roles of financial institutions in credit risk transfer, while no such evidence is found for other factors including size, liquidity and asset write-down. 讲座人简介: Jian Yang is a tenured Associate Professor of Finance at University of Colorado Denver, USA.
