Abstract

The aim of this study is to analyze the potential risk premium inherent in the uncovered interest parity (UIP) condition. The component GARCH-in-mean model is used to measure the time-varying risk premium in UIP and separates the permanent and transitory risk. The results show that the risk premium is significant in most countries studied in this analysis. This suggests that risk is an important part of modeling exchange rates and needs to be considered in both empirical and theoretical models. In general, the results suggest emerging countries work better in terms of UIP and the risk premium than developed countries.
