Abstract

© 2016 This paper investigates the effect of capital controls in banking outflow funds on financial risk in the Athens Stock Exchange. The study uses daily returns for two sub-periods before and after the capital controls, ranging from 31 March 2011 to 31 March 2016. We focus on the peaks over threshold method to calculate the risk measures. We propose a bootstrap approach to compare risk measures in two sub-periods. The bootstrap results indicate that there is an underestimation of financial risk after the capital controls.
