This paper focuses on evidence on securitized real estate markets as it investigates the volatility spillovers and correlation dynamics among the three real estate securities markets: China, Hong Kong and Taiwan in Greater China (GC) as well as their international linkages with the US securitized real estate markets over 1995-2009. Overall, results indicate the conditional volatility linkages and correlations among the GC securitized real estate markets have outweighed those relationships with the US, implying closer real estate market integration among the GC markets. Diversification potential across the markets is still good due to lower cross-market volatility interactions and correlation. Finally, there is also evidence supporting a higher level of conditional correlation and volatility spillover index in the post Asian as well as the global financial crisis periods.
Keywords: Greater China securitized real estate markets, volatility linkages, time-varying correlations, asymemetric BEKK model, global financial crisis
