Abstract: This study investigates the transmission mechanism of Asia-Pacific sovereign bond yields. Sovereign bond yields are decomposed into three latent factors (level, slope and curvature) using the Dynamic Nelson Siegel procedure proposed by Diebold and Li (2006). The yield curve transmission mechanism is examined using the time-varying parameter vector autoregressive (TVP-VAR) connectedness approach a la Antonakakis and Gabauer (2017). Findings suggest that the level factor interconnectedness is constantly higher than the interconnectedness of the slope and curvature factor. Notably, the slope factor interconnectedness strongly increased after the Global Financial Crisis (2009) illustrating the increased importance of short-term movements.
