A DYMIMIC Model of Forward Foreign Exchange Risk, with Estimates for Three Major Exchange Rates
One explanation which has been proposed for the failure of the forward exchange rate to act as an unbiased predictor of the future spot rate is the exist ence of a time-varying risk premium. This paper models the risk premi um as a latent variable depending upon domestic and foreign asset yie ld volatility, using an unobservable components framework. Estimates of the model for dollar-sterling, dollar-Swiss franc and dollar-Japan ese yen, obtained by maximum likelihood Kalman filtering techniques, are encouraging.
