Abstract

We show that banks' foreign asset holdings are significant determinants of bank and sovereign CDS premia. Our analysis uses detailed
data on the composition and risk of banks' foreign exposures. For the largest banks, a one standard deviation change in our foreign-
exposure risk measure leads to a 30 basis point change in the CDS premia. Further, we show that sovereign CDS premia are significantly
affected by the foreign exposures of their domestic banks. We quantify how this global spillover effect depends on the size and riskiness of the
sovereign's implicit and explicit guarantees extended to its domestic banking system.
