SUERF Studies No. 2015/2
The present SUERF Study includes a selection of papers based on the authors’ contributions to the Vienna conference, jointly organized by SUERF, the OeNB and the Austrian Society for Bank Research. In reply to the financial crisis, the Great Recession and sovereign debt crisis, many central banks have pursued ultra-easy and far reaching unconventional monetary policies for several years. Yields on various bond classes – including euro area sovereign bond yields since the sovereign debt crisis has subsided – have reached extremely low levels. Prices on stocks and real assets have soared. In several countries, markets have been expecting a reversal of the interest rate cycle for some time now. As a result, the risk of – possibly substantial – price corrections in all these asset classes may be seen to have increased.
