PhD defence: Andreas Bang Nielsen

In order to obtain the PhD degree, Andreas Bang Nielsen has submitted his thesis entitled: Essays on Foreign Exchange and Credit Risk.

Thursday, June 28, 2018 - 13:00 to 15:00

The thesis consists of three self-contained essays. The first chapter develops a model that explains how currency denomination may cause differences in prices of credit risky securities on the same issuer.
The model is estimated to Eurozone sovereign credit default swaps denominated in euro and U.S. dollar. The second essay develops a method for calculating forward-looking risk exposures to currency factors and empirically examines their performance compared to risk exposures estimated from historical data. The final essay investigates empirically whether exposure to systematic currency risk explains the cross-section of currency volatility excess returns.
