Global Funding Liquidity, Equity Returns and Crash Risk: Implications for Monetary Policy

Aidan Corcoran, Institute for International Integration Studies, Trinity College Dublin


Monetary policy loosening and the associated impact on credit availability may have played a role in the present financial crisis. If such liquidity risk exists and is undiversifiable, then loose monetary policy should be associated with a risk premium. This paper tests for the existence of such a premium in US and global equity markets, in an asset pricing framework which accounts for endogeneity from equity prices to credit availability.
