Live Online Training Course: Advanced Stress Testing & Scenario Analysis

To ensure we meet your expectations and maximise your return on training investment, we favour a classroom/workshop style set

Stress testing has long been a critical element of risk management within banks and other financial institutions, particularly those regulated by the Federal Reserve and subject to CCAR. Although banks have experience in this field, the emergence of new types of risk and continued economic volatility mean that it is crucial for them to evaluate their current processes and ensure that they are agile, efficient and commensurate with the size and complexity of the bank.

The IMODX Consortium structured this program to provide understanding of the regulatory requirements and internal risk management principles related to stress testing. This also elaborates various types of stress testing programs and how practitioners can carry out stress testing and integrate it into their overall risk management framework and BAU processes. This will be supported by practical examples, and a hands-on war game exercise which includes an examination of management stress testing actions and what could be done to adjust business exposures and stress testing practices to keep banks within required regulatory and performance ratios.
