Research output: Contribution to conferenceLecturepeer-review


We propose a new method to assess sovereign risk index in emerging markets using an approach that relies on consistent tests for stochastic dominance efficiency. The test statistics and estimators are computed using mixed integer programming methods. An economic, political and financial risk ranking of emerging countries is obtained. Finally an overall risk index is constructed and one main result is that the financial is the main contributor of sovereign risk in emerging markets followed with political and economic risk.
