Abstract

This study explores the interdependence between timber, water, and energy markets and investigates the potential domino effect of extreme risk across these markets. Specifically, using CAViaR-TVP-VAR, we examine the role of water and timber investments as safe-havens and hedges for traditional energy markets, before and after the COVID-19 pandemic. Our results indicate that water and timber markets can serve as reliable safe-haven options for energy investors. Moreover, our findings suggest a weak link between natural gas and its counterparts, underscoring the need for energy portfolios to diversify. This study provides valuable insights for investors seeking to navigate extreme risk.
