Analyzing credit risk transmission to the non-financial sector in Europe: a network approach

Christian Gross () and Pierre Siklos ()

No 78, ESRB Working Paper Series from European Systemic Risk Board

Abstract: We use a factor model and elastic net shrinkage to model a high-dimensional network of European CDS spreads. Our empirical approach allows us to assess the joint transmission of bank and sovereign risk to the non-financial corporate sector. Our findings identify a sectoral clustering in the CDS network, where financial institutions are in the center and non-financial entities as well as sovereigns are grouped around the financial center. The network has a geographical component reflected in different patterns of real-sector risk transmission across countries. Our framework also provides dynamic estimates of risk transmission, a useful tool for systemic risk monitoring. JEL Classification: C32, C38, C55, F3, G01, G15
