Preliminary scope of work in English
The purpose of this diploma thesis is to analyze the relationship between evolution of macroeconomic variables in an economy and health of its banking sector. Although financial markets have been experiencing rapid growth in importance and complexity during last two decades, banking sectors' soundness still persists as the most important component of financial stability of modern economies. That`s why banking sector stability has been traditionally in the centre of theoretical and empirical research.
There exists various approaches toward identification of banking sector fragility. Leading among them are Event-based method and Index-based method. In the theoretical part of diploma thesis I will map the current state of research in both of these streams.
Afterwards, practical part of the diploma thesis will be dedicated do Index-based method. I will try to construct Stability Index of Banking Sector for Czech Republic and other countries, based on existing indexes that observe exposure of banks to main types of risk.
In the last, empirical part of the thesis I will examine correlation between evolution of banking sector fragility (as suggested by constructed Index) and macoreoconimic variales in a country.
In the master thesis I would like to reach these two main aspirations:
• To construct Index of banking sector fragility, based on the theory of accumlation of risk-taking, based on existing recommendations in scholar literature.
• To empirically test whether evolution of chosen economic variables (e.g. stock price index, import, forex, inflation) is correlated with evolution of banking sector stability as given by the constructed Index./
