''Modeling interbank relations during the international financial crisis''
( 2011, Vol. 31 No.1 )
This paper examines the effects of the current financial crisis on the correlations of four international banking stocks. We find that in the beginning of the crisis banks generally show a transition to a higher correlation followed by a dramatic decline towards the end of 2008. These findings are consistent with both traditional contagion theory and the more recent network theory of contagion.
Keywords: Financial Crises, Contagion, Interbank Markets
