In this paper, a change point detection approach based on copula with two notable advantages is put forward. One is that the approach can deal with the common but special unbalanced panel data. The other is that it can detect multiple change points. Firstly, a proper copula that most accurately describes the dependence structure of the data is chosen. Then, the chosen copula is fitted to the data dynamically by adding new data. Finally, the change points are located by analyzing the trends of fitted parameters of the copula. Based on the quarterly financial data of 16 listed Chinese commercial banks, we empirically use the proposed approach to detect the subprime crisis contagion period in Chinese banking. The results show that the contagion starts in 2007Q2 and ends in 2009Q1, which is reasonable according to relevant researches.

The knowledge of the multivariate stochastic dependence between the returns of asset classes is of importance for many finance applications, such as asset allocation or risk management. By means of goodness-of-fit tests, we analyze for a multitude of portfolios consisting of different asset classes whether the stochastic dependence between the portfolios’ constituents can be adequately described by multivariate versions of some standard parametric copula functions. Furthermore, we test whether t...

This paper deals with a statistical model fitting procedure for non-stationary time series. This procedure selects the parameters of a piecewise autoregressive model using the Minimum Description Length principle. The existing chromosome representation of the piecewise autoregressive model and its corresponding optimisation algorithm are improved. First, we show that our proposed chromosome representation better captures the intrinsic properties of the piecewise autoregressive model. Second, we ...

A break detection testing procedure for the well-known AR(p) linear panel data model with exogenous or pre-determined regressors is developed. The proposed method can accommodate a structural break in the slope parameters as well as in the fixed effects. Breaks in the latter are not constrained by any type of cross-sectional homogeneity and are allowed to be correlated with all past information. Monte Carlo simulations indicate that the test performs satisfactorily even in the type of panel data...

Recently, the number of consultative documents and research papers that discuss risk integration has grown considerably. This paper presents a comprehensive review of the work done on risk integration in the banking industry. This survey includes: (1) risk integration methods within regulatory frameworks and the banking industry; (2) challenges of risk integration; (3) risk interaction mechanisms; (4) development of risk integration approaches; (5) risk interaction results: diversification versu...

The effects of recent subprime financial crisis on the US stock market are analyzed. To investigate this problem, a Bayesian panel data analysis to identify common factors that explain the movement of stock returns when the dimension is high is developed. For high-dimensional panel data, it is known that previously proposed approaches cannot estimate accurately the variance-covariance matrix. An advantage of the proposed method is that it considers parameter uncertainty in variance-covariance es...

In this study, we employ a dynamic time warping method to study the topology of similarity networks among 35 major currencies in international foreign exchange (FX) markets, measured by the minimal spanning tree (MST) approach, which is expected to overcome the synchronous restriction of the Pearson correlation coefficient. In the empirical process, firstly, we subdivide the analysis period from June 2005 to May 2011 into three sub-periods: before, during, and after the US sub-prime crisis. Seco...

Based on risk factor method, a model for building dependence among risk factors is discussed for assessing schedule risk of software project. Three main risk factors which influence software schedule are described. Copula method is used to model the dependence among risk factor, and Monte Carlo method is adopted to simulate the schedule risk model. The empirical results from a Communication Corporation show that schedule risk of the new software project is overestimated without modeling the depe...

We find that emerging markets appeared to be somewhat insulated from developments in U.S. financial markets from early 2007 to summer 2008. From that point on, however, emerging markets responded very strongly to the deteriorating situation in the U.S. financial system and real economy. Policy measures taken in emerging markets to insulate themselves from global financial developments proved inadequate in the face of the credit crunch and decline in international trade that followed the Lehman b...
