Economics of sovereign wealth funds : issues for policymakers by Udaibir S Das( Book )

16 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book covers a wide range of topics of relevance to policymakers in countries that have sovereign wealth funds (SWFs), and those that receive SWF investments, organized around four themes: (1) the role and macrofinancial linkages of SWFs, (2) institutional factors, (3) investment approaches and financial markets, and (4) the post-crisis outlook. It also discusses the challenges facing sovereign wealth funds in the coming years, from an inside perspective on countries, including Canada, Chile, China, Norway, Russia, and New Zealand"--Provided by publisher
Unwinding financial sector interventions : preconditions and practical considerations by International Monetary Fund( Book )

16 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the financial crisis abates, governments are faced with the challenge of balancing the withdrawal of fiscal support with reestablishing sound public finances and sustainable growth. This volume presents papers from an IMF-sponsored conference of senior policymakers, academics, and senior representatives of the private sector on unwinding public interventions initiated during the crisis. There was broad agreement that the main goal of any strategy for unwinding such interventions should be to create price stability, fiscal sustainability, and a new economic landscape that is much safer than currently exists. Different perspectives on the timing and sequence of the exit process are presented and some guiding principles for exit strategies are discussed. Policy objectives, unwinding public support to banks, and dealing with risky assets purchased by central banks are among topics discussed in detail. The volume also presents views on what the new financial landscape will look like.--Publisher's description
Does regulatory governance matter for financial system stability? : an empirical analysis by Udaibir S Das( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper provides empirical evidence that the quality of regulatory governance-governance practices adopted by financial system regulators and supervisors-matters for financial system soundness. The paper constructs indices of financial system soundness and regulatory governance, based on country data collected from the Financial Sector Assessment Program (FSAP). Regression results indicate that regulatory governance has a significant influence on financial system soundness, along with variables reflecting macroeconomic conditions, the structure of the banking system, and the quality of political institutions and public sector governance. The results also indicate that good public sector governance amplifies the impact of regulatory governance on financial system soundness
Strategic considerations for first-time sovereign bond issuers by Udaibir S Das( Book )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The recent round of debt relief has restored debt sustainability in many low-income countries (LICs). This, along with a continued search for yield and desire for portfolio diversification by investors, has increased the range of viable financing options, including international bonds, for many emerging market (EM) economies and LICs. This paper presents some of the advantages and disadvantages of international debut bonds, within a debt sustainability framework. It outlines key preconditions and discusses strategic considerations that countries need to take into account when contemplating bond issuance in international markets for the first time. In this context, the paper also discusses some typical pitfalls in accessing international capital markets, including excessive issue size relative to the intended use of bond proceeds, issuance of bullet bonds, and inadequate preparation for accessing the markets
Quality of financial policies and financial system stress by Udaibir S Das( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper, we develop multi-country indices of financial system stress and quality of financial policies and use them in regression analysis of the determinants of financial stress. We find that countries with higher quality of financial policies are better able to contain the effects of macroeconomic pressures on the overall level of stress in the financial system. They are also in a better position to ensure sustainable development of the financial system

Sovereign default risk and private sector access to capital in emerging markets by Udaibir S Das( Book )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Top down" spillovers of sovereign default risk can have serious consequences for the private sector in emerging markets. This paper analyzes the effects of these spillovers using firm-level data from 31 emerging market economies. We assess how sovereign risk affects corporate access to international capital markets, in the form of external credit (loans and bond issuances) and equity issuances. The study first analyzes the impact of sovereign debt crises during the 1980s and 1990s. It goes on to examine the 1993 to 2007 period, using additional measures of sovereign risk-sovereign bond spreads and sovereign ratings-as explanatory variables. Overall, we find that sovereign default risk is a crucial determinant of private sector access to capital, be it external debt or equity. We also find that crisis resolution patterns matter and that defaults towards private creditors have stronger adverse consequences than defaults to official creditors
Sovereign Debt Restructurings 1950 - 2010: Literature Survey, Data, and Stylized Facts by Christoph Trebesch( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper provides a comprehensive survey of pertinent issues on sovereign debt restructurings, based on a newly constructed database. This is the first complete dataset of sovereign restructuring cases, covering the six decades from 1950-2010; it includes 186 debt exchanges with foreign banks and bondholders, and 447 bilateral debt agreements with the Paris Club. We present new stylized facts on the outcome and process of debt restructurings, including on the size of haircuts, creditor participation, and legal aspects. In addition, the paper summarizes the relevant empirical literature, anal

Chinas road to greater financial stability : some policy perspectives by Udaibir S Das( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

China has reached a stage where further financial sector reforms appear essential. As the reform process progresses and macrofinancial linkages deepen, the preservation of financial stability will become a major policy preoccupation. China is already working toward enhancing its surveillance and monitoring capabilities and is actively determining ways to undertake a series of reforms that would lay the foundation for a strong, sustained, and balanced growth. "China's Road to Economic Stability" focuses on the key financial policy issues facing China today. The volume draws upon contributions from senior Chinese authorities and academics, as well as staff from the IMF to discuss the financial policy context within China, macroeconomic factors affecting financial stability, and the critical role of financial system oversight. It seeks to improve the understanding of the financial sector policy processes underway and the shifts taking place among China's economic priorities. The book also covers issues such as the financial stability framework, systemic linkages, liquidity management, risk and vulnerability analysis, and sequencing financial reforms. The book is a must read for academics, researchers, and stakeholders interested in China and the shifts taking place in the manner in which China views its financial sector policies and oversees the stability of the financial system

Insurance and issues in financial soundness by Udaibir S Das( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper explores insurance as a source of financial system vulnerability. It provides a brief overview of the insurance industry and reviews the risks it faces, as well as several recent failures of insurance companies that had systemic implications. Assimilation of banking-type activities by life insurers appears to be the key systemic vulnerability. Building on this experience and the experience gained under the FSAP, the paper proposes key indicators that should be compiled and used for surveillance of financial soundness of insurance companies and the insurance sector as a whole
Cross-country and cross-sector analysis of transparency of monetary and financial policies by Vasudevan Sundararajan( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper we construct indices of transparency of monetary and financial policies, based on self-evaluations carried out by 135 IMF member countries in 1999, and use them to identify transparency patterns across different policies and country groups. We find that across all countries, transparency is highest in the formulation and conduct of monetary policy and lowest in insurance supervision and deposit-insurance oversight. Across country groups having similar political/economic characteristics, the average degree of transparency is highest in advanced countries and lowest in developing ones for both monetary policy and those financial policies for which there are differences between country group means
