Abstract: This study provides stylised facts on the relationships between natural disasters, investor sentiments and market performance using the recent Turkey–Syria earthquakes. We employ daily stock market data relating to Turkey’s 21 major trading partners and find significant negative impact of the disaster on the sampled countries’ stock market returns, particularly for countries near Turkey.
