The paper forecasts conditional correlations between three classes of international financial assets, namely stock, bond and foreign exchange. Two countries are considered, namely Australia and New Zealand. Forecasting will be conducted using three multivariate GARCH models, namely the CCC model [T. Bollerslev, Modelling the coherence in short-run nominal exchange rates: a multivariate generalized ARCH model, Rev. Econ. Stat. 72 (1990) 498–505], VARMA-GARCH model [S. Ling, M. McAleer, Asymptotic theory for a vector ARMA-GARCH model, Econometric Theory 19 (2003) 280–310], and VARMA-AGARCH model [M. McAleer, S. Hoti, F. Chan, Structure and asymptotic theory for multivariate asymmetric volatility, Econometric Rev., in press]. A rolling window technique is used to forecast 1-day ahead conditional correlations. To evaluate the impact of model specification on conditional correlations forecasts, this paper calculates and compares the correlations between conditional correlations forecasts resulted from the three models. The paper finds the evidence of volatility spillovers and asymmetric effect of negative and positive shock on the conditional variance in most pairs of series. However, it suggests that incorporating volatility spillovers and asymmetric do not contribute to better conditional correlations forecasts.
Three key elements in portfolio construction are estimates of returns, risks and correlations of assets in the portfolio. Researchers have, for so long, focused mainly on estimating returns and risk, and have assumed that correlations are constant and have therefore paid less attention on them. However, recent studies uncover that the correlations vary over time (see de Santis and Gerard  and Longin and Solnik  for stock, Hunter and Simon  and Solnik et al.  for bonds). Therefore, modelling and forecasting future correlations between those financial assets become a need. A growing topic in finance literature is the investigation of the relationship between correlation and volatility. King and Wadhwani  and Bertero and Mayer  find that international correlations tend to increase during periods of market crises. Ramchand and Susmel  document that the correlations between stock markets are higher in a high variance state as compared to a low variance regime. Longin and Solnik  and Karolyi and Stulz  find that correlations across major stock markets are higher when market are more volatile. On the other hand, the development in GARCH family model uncovers the importance of volatility spillovers and asymmetric effect of negative and positive conditional shock on the conditional variance in explaining the volatility in financial assets (see Fleming et al.  and Hakim and McAleer , among others). These motivate the paper to investigate whether multivariate GARCH models which capture volatility spillovers and asymmetric effect provide better conditional correlations forecasts. Three multivariate GARCH models will be estimated for the purposes, namely the VARMA-AGARCH of McAleer et al. , the VARMA-GARCH model of Ling and McAleer , and the CCC model of Bollerslev . A rolling window is used to forecast 1-day ahead conditional correlations. Both VARMA-AGARCH and VARMA-GARCH models incorporate volatility spillovers, with VARMA-AGARCH also considers asymmetric effects of negative and positive shock on the conditional variance. The CCC model is estimated as benchmark for comparison, as the model does not consider both volatility spillovers and asymmetric effects. Three classes of assets are included in the models, namely stock, bond and foreign exchange, considering the importance of those assets in portfolio construction (see Chen et al.  and Odier and Solnik , among others). Two countries are considered, namely Australia and New Zealand. Both countries have strong economy relationship; hence volatility spillovers are expected to occur across both markets. In addition, both countries are of the same time zone. This avoids the problem of non-synchronous data. To evaluate the impact of model specification on the forecast of conditional correlations, the paper calculates and compares the correlations between the forecast of conditional correlations resulted from the three models. In the presence of volatility spillovers, we would expect low correlations between the forecasts of CCC and that of the other models. In the presence of asymmetric effect, we would expect low correlations between VARMA-AGARCH and that of the other two models.

The paper estimated three multivariate GARCH models on bond, stock and foreign exchange from Australia and New Zealand. The evidence of volatility spillovers and asymmetric effects of negative and positive shocks on conditional variance suggested that VARMA-AGARCH is superior to VARMA-AGARCH and CCC models. The paper also compared conditional correlations forecasts resulted from the three models. A rolling window approach was used to forecast 1-day ahead conditional correlations. Evaluation was conducted by analyzing the correlations of conditional correlations forecasts resulted from the models, along with the evidence of volatility spillovers and asymmetric effect of negative and positive shocks on the conditional variance. The paper suggested that incorporating volatility spillovers and asymmetric of negative and positive shocks on the conditional variance does not affect forecasting conditional correlations. Future research might consider other GARCH model specification such as the VECH and DVECH models of Bollerslev et al.  or the BEKK model of Engle and Kroner , in conducting conditional correlations forecast. However, as widely known, the VECH and BEKK models suffer from the curse of dimensionality, which makes convergence of estimation difficult to achieve.
