I need an expert for financial analysis in R.
1. You should present a statistical characterization of the system for what concern the distributional properties of balance sheets and interbank claims. You should generate the network corresponding to the pattern of interbank loans, characterize its properties (e.g. degree distribution, clustering, assortativity), discuss how it is different or similar to an Erdös-Rényi network, and how you do expect the network properties to affect the propagation of distress within the system, when this is measured with the Furfine algorithm.
2. You will then perform stress tests using the Furfine algorithm (you are also welcome to use contagion algorithms other than the Furfine if you prefer), analyze and discuss their results.
3. You will then consider that part of the external assets of each bank is invested in a common asset (you can consider a more complex structure of overlapping portfolios if you prefer), you will perform stress tests where shocks simultaneously propagate because of counterparty risk and overlapping portfolios, and you will compare these results with those of point 2.
You are free to explore scenarios of your choice for what concern the initial exogenous shock, and to make assumptions for what concern the recovery rate and the liquidity of external assets, as long as all assumptions and scenarios are clearly stated and justified in your report.
I will share the data with the suitable experts.
Please apply if you have the required expertise.
