Abstract

Rather than assessing the market reaction to individual dates associated with the Brazilian debt crisis, eight significant dates associated with the crisis are studied simultaneously. The results show a systematic shift in the returns generating process, caused by the debt crisis. The beta of the money centre bank portfolio increased significantly subsequent to the agreement on the rescheduling of Brazilian debt, while the beta for banks without LDC debt decreased significantly after the agreement. Contagion effects associated with the announcement of the Citicorp loan loss reserves were also observed.
