Course Overview

This course provides an understanding of how stress-testing initiatives can be carried out in financial institutions, be it for regulatory or for management purposes. It is more and more critical for banks to master the type of risks that rarely occur, but each time to devastating effects for the unprepared. The 2007 crisis has proven, once again, that the exercise is less easy than people care to admit, and more critical to survival and success than regulators used to think. This course explores the techniques to design and test relevant scenarios. There are no formal prerequisites.
