Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

Stress-testing as practiced in most institutions is much too often hijacked by regulatory necessity: to improve one’s standing for the authorities, reputational necessities: to reassure the public, and hence can turn into a regulatory exercise, instead of being useful for the top management and for the regulators in charge of systemic risk management.

We provide a few pointers at how a stress-testing exercise can be improved by a choice of scenarios, and provide a few criteria for finding and selecting appropriate scenarios.

Learning Objectives:

We try to address, among the challenges of stress-testing, the way to counter the natural tendencies to choose irrelevant or innocuous scenarios. The hurdles can pertain to human interests, as well as in emotional domains: it is seldom easy for individuals or teams to recognize that their proud and successful organization can be deemed mortal by a plausible scenario.

We indicate how stress-testing can concentrate on the few plausible scenarios that are painful enough, and how to redefined and calibrate these scenarios. We show some sources for scenarios, pitfalls to be avoided, and how the choice of the right scenarios can provide good insights into strategic management of a financial institution.
