dc.description.abstractUsing the recent Credit Crunch as a global fixed point for international financial markets, this study investigates how the collapse of Lehman, treated as an exogenous shock to the U.S. financial market, caused an increase in international equity market comovement. Using a sample of 47 FTSE equity markets, the study explores how comovement between the US and international markets evolved during the Crash of October 2008. Consistent with predictions of contagion, I find strong evidence of increased comovement when controlling for market fundamentals.en_US
