Registered author(s):

    El desarrollo del mercado financiero en Colombia, ha hecho que la integración con losmerados financieros internacionales sea cada vez más evidente. Es por esto que el estudiodel grado de relación de nuestras tasas de interés con las tasas de interés de las tasasinternacionales, cobra relevancia. Este estudio, busca evidencia sobre el cumplimiento de lahipótesis de paridad descubierta de intereses y la hipótesis de expectativas racionales, através del uso de las curvas cero cupón de Colombia y Estados Unidos, siguiendo lametodología derivada del estudio de Bekaert (2002). Se encuentra que el cumplimiento deambas hipótesis, simultáneamente, no es un hecho común entre los diferenciales de tasas deColombia y Estados Unidos. Además, en algunos casos, se encuentra que las hipótesis nose cumplen entre las tasas de interés de la misma nacionalidad.***In recent years, the development of the Colombian financial markets have done that theintegration with the international markets had been evident.
