In this study, we derive a CDS implied equity volatility index from highly liquid one-year contracts in the Eurozone, and for the inclusive period 2008–2014. We analyze the relationship between this volatility index and the VSTOXX 12 M within a fractionally cointegrated vector autoregressive (FCVAR) model. Our results confirm a stationary long-run equilibrium relationship between the two volatility indices in which the CDS implied index plays the leading role.
