International Reserves-Too Much Of A Zipf's Thing

The paper examines the scope for cross-border spillovers among major EU banks using information contained in the stock prices and financial statements of these banks. The results suggest that spillovers within domestic banking systems generally remain more likely, but the number of significant cross-border links is already larger than the number of significant links among domestic banks, adding a piece of empirical evidence supporting the need for strong cross-border supervisory cooperation within the EU. The findings, based on market-based data and the Extreme Value Theory framework, suggest that spillovers within domestic banking systems are generally more likely.
