We use univariate and multivariate GARCH-type models to investigate the properties of conditional volatilities of stock returns and exchange rates, as well as their empirical relationships. Taking three European stock markets and two popular US dollar exchange rates as case study, our results show strong evidence of asymmetry and long memory in the conditional variances of all the series considered. In multivariate settings we find that bilateral relationships between stock and foreign exchange markets are highly significant for France and Germany. Moreover, both the univariate FIAPARCH and bivariate CCC-FIAPARCH models provide more accurate in-sample estimates and out-of-sample forecasts than the other competing GARCH-based specifications in almost all cases. Finally, there is evidence to support the suitability of the FIAPARCH model in forecasting portfolio's market risk exposure and the existence of diversification benefits between stock and foreign exchange markets.
