Gyuri Venter and Paul Whelan receive a DKK 1.53 mill. grant from The Danish Council for Independent Research
Assistant professors at the Department of Finance and FRIC center members Gyuri Venter and Paul Whelan receive DKK 1.53 mill. grant from The Danish Council for Independent Research to investigate the effect of monetary policy communication on asset prices.
The project is entitled Monetary Policy Networks and Asset Prices and studies how central banks communicate and what information they provide, especially in crisis times. Worse-than-expected monetary policy communication can propagate negative macroeconomic shocks, leading to contagion across asset classes, both domestically and internationally. The project intends to build theoretical models and confirm their predictions in sovereign bond and exchange rate markets using a new, comprehensive set of international monetary policy.
