Exchange Rate Volatility
& Financial Integration
in South Korea & Japan

While much has been written to determine the impact of uncertainty stemming from foreign exchange rate volatility on financial market development, a clear consensus among economists has yet to emerge. However, understanding the complexities of this relationship is key to fostering financial market development. It can also reveal the importance of regional and international capital markets on a given economy. This link is particularly important now in the Korean context, given the recent decline of the Korean won against the U.S. dollar, the importance of foreign investment in the domestic stock market, and efforts to strengthen regional financial integration.

KEI welcomes you to join us for a presentation by economist Dr. Rajarshi Mitra to examine the relationship between the exchange rate of the won and stock market returns in Korea and Japan, including a discussion of the policy implications for Korea.
