This paper uses the eGARCH-Copula model to examine the tail dependence and Value at Risk (VaR) of the log returns of the US and Asian exchange indices as pairs of portfolio in three periods: before, in and after finance crisis. The results indicated that the eGARCH-Copula model works well on measuring the tail dependence and VaR between the US and Asian stock market; and after finance crisis, the dependence structure changed including on tail dependence and VaR.
