    Ep. 144: Supervision of Stress Testing by Financial Institutions

    Ep. 144: Supervision of Stress Testing by Financial Institutions

    Stress testing should be a critical element of risk management for most financial institutions. It should alert boards and senior management to potential adverse outcomes related to a broad range of risks and vulnerabilities, identify potential losses, liquidity needs, and operational responses should adverse shocks occur. Supervisors should, in turn, have a strong interest in stress testing by financial institutions. This TC Note and accompanying podcast discusses the need for financial institutions to conduct stress testing, what types of stress tests and scenario analyses are used, possible adverse outcomes, key areas in stress testing supervision, and the possible usages of the results by financial institutions.Speaker: Clive Briault, Chair, Banking Advisory Board, Toronto CentreHost: Demet Çanakçı, Senior Program Director, Toronto CentreRead the transcript here (https://torcentre.sharepoint.com/:b:/s/Files/EVfrFLns1UZKnd4Ds13YbYUBsQBCIy5TCZaS2nCbpc910w?e=NMZYDB). Read their biographies here (https://torcentre.sharepoint.com/:b:/s/Files/EXYXp0lnheNPukeADOVvxKMB6nnY6i1HF_Xj1YJatJwMJw?e=8RySB7).https://www.torontocentre.org/ (https://www.torontocentre.org/)

    Ep. 143: Supervisory Stress Testing: A Primer

    Ep. 143: Supervisory Stress Testing: A Primer

    Supervisory stress testing is a technique used to assess the robustness of financial institutions and the broader financial system to severe but plausible shocks. Since the Global Financial Crisis of 2008, it has emerged as an important tool for supervisors that complements other approaches and methods.Stress testing is one of the more complex tasks undertaken by supervisory authorities. Primarily used to inform solvency and liquidity adequacy assessments, it is also a critical method for exploring emerging risks and the threats they pose to financial institutions.This TC Note and accompanying podcast discusses the design, effective use, limitations, and interpretation of stress tests by financial supervisors. It explores a range of stress tests, from elementary, top-down applications to more sophisticated tests using scenarios applied bottom-up to multiple financial institutions. Speaker: R.
