''Is currency risk priced for emerging stock markets?''
( 2012, Vol. 32 No.3 )
 
 
In this paper we examine the relevance of currency risk in emerging countries using a conditional version of an international capital pricing model. Our results show that both currency risk and market risk are time-varying and priced in emerging stock markets. In particular, the currency risk premium is economically significant and represents a significant portion of the total risk premium during the crisis periods.
