Deviations From Covered Interest Rate Parity: Evaluating Drivers for Changes
This paper evaluates the deviation from covered interest rate parity (CIP) after the great financial crisis. As a new phenomenon, this deviation has been approached both theoretically (violating the no arbitrage condition) and empirically. Through an extensive literature review, this study maps the possible drivers of the deviation and their proxies. We apply the analysis on a set of countries that are not yet explored in the related literature so far, even though represent a significant part of the foreign exchange market. Regarding the results, a significant weight in the financial drivers is obtained. The result claims for a deeper analysis and opens the possibility to evaluate this phenomenon under a new perspective.
