In the present time, often labelled as unprecedented, with the stress-test scenario for pandemics painfully and tragically among us, financial institutions could be tempted to perform the wrong kind of stress-tests.

Why Should You Attend:

Given that the history of regulation shows to go through a cycle of neglect, shock, paranoia and neglect again, we can expect a new wave of regulation that will include the last crisis. However, now is also a good time to, above and regulatory requirements and just because it makes sense, pull up every lesson from the pandemic episode, and to perform stress-testing exercises based upon the new scenarios that have become more likely to occur. One of the reasons is that the pandemic recovery, if and when it comes, will see new winners and new losers among financial institutions.

With the numerous areas of instability, present and to come, it is easier than ever to make again the typical mistakes in stress-testing. Let us try, this time, to improve on the post-2007 response, and ensure that financial institutions emerge in a more performing state than before.

Learning Objectives:

This is truer and all the more worrying for extreme risks, in which there are few or no precedents. Hence stress-test exercises, even assuming that these are carried on properly in the first place, should indicate any residual vulnerability, to be disclosed. However, we still have to meet a bank that clearly gives away to the public scenarios that, if occurring, will bring the bank down.

We examine here a few aspects of reported risks, where these are to be found, and finally concrete examples.
