Title: The Price of Asymmetric Dependence

Abstract:

We examine the relative importance of asymmetric dependence (AD) and systematic risk

in the cross-section of US equities. Using a β-invariant AD metric, we demonstrate a

lower-tail dependence premium that is only 35% of the market risk premium, compared

with an upper-tail dependence discount that is 41% of the market risk premium. Lowertail

dependence displays a constant price between 1989-2009. Subsequently, we find that

return changes in US equities between 2007-2009 reflected changes in systematic risk

and upper-tail dependence. This suggests that both systematic risk and AD should be

managed in order to reduce the return impact of market downturns.

Key words: Asymmetric dependence, asset pricing, tail risk, downside risk, systematic

risk.
