Bank Stress Testing in Practice

when 17 July 2013 - 14 August 2013
duration 4 weeks
credits 9.9 ECTS

Stress testing is occupying a prominent place in the risk management areas, macro-prudential regulation and financial supervision of banks and financial institutions. The course aims to provide a solid knowledge of stress testing methodologies using severe scenarios and a set of benchmark assumptions as an important tool to identifying, testing, and reducing vulnerabilities at banks. The participants will work on case studies during class time and will perform portfolio-level stress tests and sensitivity analyses in order to measure the potential impact of macro-economic challenging conditions on asset quality, capital adequacy and earnings and consequently testing the strength and resilience of portfolios, banks and financial systems as a whole in the worst scenarios and under sudden shocks. Course offered by Department of Economics.
