Although there have been many empirical studies about systemic risk since the financial crisis of 2008, few have analyzed the systemic risk in the time-frequency domain. In this paper, based on wavelet analysis, the main time-frequency characteristics of China’s systemic risk, the time-frequency similarity between financial institutions, the comovement and the systemic risk contagion channels are analyzed. We find that the systemic risk rose in the short-run but fell in the long-run. In addition, city commercial banks are becoming the main source and contributor of systemic risk.
