Özet

In this study, we identify economic transmission channels through which changes in funding liquidity conditions in interbank markets asymmetrically affect volatilities of stock portfolios during the COVID-19 crisis. For the purpose of this study, the quantile regression approach is utilized. Controlling for macroeconomic factors, we document that volatilities of high-risk portfolios increase more in response to a deterioration in funding liquidity conditions compared to less risky portfolios. More importantly, this increase intensifies in high-volatility periods of high-risk portfolios, which implies the impact is stronger during uncertain economic environments, such as the one caused by the COVID-19 outbreak.
