Quantile Connectedness: Modelling Tail Behaviour in Financial Networks

Compare Network Heatmaps at Different Quantiles

Select the cases to compare below -- e.g. choose 'OLS' and '0.95' to compare the network under OLS and at the 95th conditional quantile

Column headers identify the source of the spillover effect and row headers identify the target -- _s identifies a sovereign and _b a financial sector

The strength of the spillover effects is depicted by the depth of the shading -- see the vertical colourbar to the right of each figure (x100 for percent)

Spillovers intensify markely in both tails of the conditional distribution
