The sudden depreciation of a national currency can have different possible effects on the local economy: a contractionary effect (through increase in the amount of real debt and the probality of default) and an expansionary effect (through increase in exports, improvement of balance of payments, and reduction of default.

It is generally very difficult to measure the effects of a currency depreciation on a country’s balance sheet and financing costs given the endogenous properties of the exchange rate. History provides at least one natural experiment to test whether an exogenous exchange rate depreciation can be contractionary (via an increased real debt burden) or expansionary (via an improved current account).

On the other hand, exchange rate depreciation could also stimulate exports and reduce default risk by improving a country’s ability to pay.

If debt valuation effects dominate, this deterioration of a country’s “balance sheet” could increase default risk.1 Currency mismatches are in fact ubiquitous, and they are deemed by many to createCited by: 5.

the real exchange rate—whether because they operate in a tradable sector, or because they directly export a share of their sales.5 If firms are actively hedging their currency exposures, balance sheet estimates obtained from dollar debt as a proxy for currency mismatches will be biased upwards.

A currency mismatch refers to how a change in the exchange rate will affect the present discounted value of future income and expenditure flows. This will depend on two broad elements. One is the currency denomination of financial assets and liabilities: the more sensitive the net financial worth to changes in the exchange rate, the greater File Size: 96KB.

EU Member States. Although the direct exchange rate risk for banks in most of these countries is controlled by regulatory limits on open foreign exchange positions, banks are still exposed to the indirect exchange rate risk that can arise from currency mismatches on their clients’ balance sheets.

First, investors are exposed to exchange rate risk on their bond positions. Perceived changes in exchange rate risk can therefore move local currency bond by: Get this from a library. Currency mismatches, default risk, and exchange rate depreciation: evidence from the end of bimetallism.

A natural experiment is used to study exchange rate depreciation and perceived sovereign risk. France suspended coinage of silver in provoking a significant exogenous depreciation of all silver standard countries versus gold standard currencies like the British pound – the currency in which their debt was payable.

The evidence suggests an exchange rate depreciation can significantly Cited by: If banks do not match the currency structure of their assets and liabilities, they face exchange rate risk.

However, if the currency structure of their assets and liabilities is identical, banks.

confidence in New Zealand investments. 3 In the specific case of non-financial firms, the expectation that currency depreciation can be contractionary is rooted in theoretical work highlighting its negative effect on firms’ financial condition.

In the presence of foreign currency debt, an exchange rate depreciation worsens firms’ net worth. Not only does this currency mismatch affect the likelihood that the firm will default, due to the additional layer of exchange rate risk put on top of the original credit risk, but it also affects the default dependency, i.e.

the asset correlation, amongst by: 2. a higher reliance on external foreign currency corporate financing is associated with a higher default risk on sovereign debt. Using loan-level data from US banks’ regulatory filings, Niepmann and Schmidt-Eisenlohr () have demonstrated that exchange rate changes can affect the ability of currency-mismatched firms to repay their by: 6.

Most often, foreign exchange risk arises when fluctu- ations in the relative values of currencies affect the competitive position or financial viability of an organ- ization.2 For MFIs, this devaluation or depreciation risk typically arises when an MFI borrows money in a foreign currency and loans it out in a DC.

exchange rates, interest rate volatility was too high for domestic currency markets to develop while currency risks were generally underestimated by most economic agents, including the government itself.7 Furthermore, because long periods of stability were followed by sharp depreciation episodes, it was just too difficult to price currency risk.Michael D Bordo & Christopher M Meissner & Marc D Weidenmier, "Currency Mismatches, Default Risk, and Exchange Rate Depreciation: Evidence from the End of Bimetallism," WEF Working PapersESRC World Economy and Finance Research Programme, Birkbeck, University of London.interest rate and exchange rate volatility, default risk, loss given default due to poor contract enforcement, and dilution and confiscation risks.

In an environment of high systemic risk, currency mismatches can therefore be understood as risk-mitigating mechanisms. This.
