In a global world such as we live today, where any economic, social or environmental news affects not only the country where it originates, but it extends as a domino effect, it has a consequence that the information disclosure by the public institutions are must adequate to mitigate the impact that may be in their investors. The risk premium has become a fundamental element in analyzing the confidence that is deposited in the countries. Every day sees its fluctuation according to the news which are disclosed in both the economic and general press. Therefore, the objective of this work will be to analyze the relationship that the Spanish risk premium has in the IBEX 35. To do this, the period 2000 to 2016 will be taken as the basis of study. Notably as a main conclusion that the relationship between both variables exists, but not with the expected intensity.
