This paper investigates the impact of the European Central Bank’s unconventional monetary policies (UMP) between 2008 and 2019 on European government bond yields. It adopts a novel econometric approach that combines data-rich factor analysis and Vector autoregression (VAR) with heteroskedastic-based identification. The results identify a significant and substantial impact for all countries and maturities, but a stronger and persistent impact for the periphery. When we decompose the impact into separate components, we find that UMP decreases the market component for all countries. It decreases the risk-mutualization component for the periphery permanently at the cost of a small increase for the core countries, which provides evidence for risk-mutualization in the EMU.
