Resumo: In this study we highlight the importance of liquidity risk, especially in periods of market stress, and advocate in favour of an explicit consideration of a liquidity premium when using mark-to-model methodologies to value financial assets. For European corporate bonds, we show that the liquidity premium, calculated as the difference between the yield spread of corporate bonds and the spread of credit default swaps, grew significantly during the recent market turmoil not only in absolute terms but also in relative terms. Although liquidity premiums were far from stable during the time frame of analysis-from 1 January 2005 to 31 December 2009 - on average roughly 40% of corporate yield spreads can be interpreted in terms of liquidity premia. We propose direct matching between the CDS and the underlying reference assets when computing liquidity premia. This differs from what seems to be the industry standard, which is simply to use indices when trying to infer market implied liquidity premia. Although computationally more demanding, the method we use is sounder from a theoretical point of view and produces richer results and analysis. With this method we are able present an analysis of liquidity risk premia per sector of activity.
