Risk Analysis of Shanghai Inter-Bank Offered Rate - A GARCH-VaR Approach
AbstractThe inter-bank offered rate widely used by Chinese commercial banks is Shanghai Inter-Bank Offered Rate (Shibor). Shibor has experienced significant development since it was created. It offers different products by duration. Despite its importance in China’s financial market, Shibor’s risk has largely remained unexplored. Making contribution to existing literature on risk management of Shibor, this paper investigates risk of Shanghai Inter- Bank Offered Rate (Shibor) utilizing GARCH-VaR method. The VaR of each product is calculated and compared while GARCH model is designed for a simpler calculation. In order to have a clearer view of Chinese commercial banks, the data selected is Shibor data sample from 2006 to 2016, which is measured by GARCH-VaR model and verified effectiveness by chi-square test. Empirical results show strong evidence for the need of Chinese commercial banks to change the status quo so that the great fluctuation and abnormal situation can be avoided. Policy implication, involving the interest rate management and internal problem in commercial banks, is proposed for financial regulators.
