Abstract

This paper investigates the interdependence and dynamic linkages between the emerging capital market of Sri Lanka and the markets of its major trading partners (Taiwan, Singapore, Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, India, and the US) using the vector autoregression (VAR) technique. No significant interdependence is discovered between the Sri Lankan market and the equity markets of the US and the Asian markets considered. Small capitalization, lack of liquidity, high concentration in blue chips, and unilateral investment barriers on Sri Lankan investors are possible reasons for lack of interdependence.
