Accumulation of foreign currency reserves and risk-taking

Rasmus Fatum and James Yetman ()

Journal of International Money and Finance, 2020, vol. 102, issue C

Abstract: We assess whether the accumulation of foreign currency reserves in the Asia-Pacific region may have unintended consequences in the form of increased private sector risk-taking. To do so we carry out a country-specific daily data event study analysis of the relationship between official announcements of reserves stocks and various proxy measures of risk-taking. Overall, our results suggest that reserves accumulation exerts no systematic influence on risk-taking.
