Abstract

This study evaluated volatility spillovers among oil price, volatility index and a pool of the credit default swaps for emerging market economies. A special role was ascribed to the time-varying interdependencies and connectedness from the perspectives of Kazakhstan, an oil exporting country. The result shows that Kazakhstan may be more resistant to the volatility, which originated from the other emerging countries. However, Kazakhstan is more sensitive to the global “fear index barometer” of volatility index and oil price volatility. The results might be appealing for portfolio diversification strategies because Kazakhstan's credit default swaps are in the low oil dependency regime.
