The Risk Enabled Enterprise: Examining the Current State and Future Direction of Enterprise Stress Testing
Although the primary reason for regulatory stress-testing in today's banks is to ensure capital adequacy, the ultimate goal is long-term stability in the financial markets with better-run banks. For that reason, stress testing is an evolving, high-profile risk management requirement subject to additional regulatory burdens and wider scrutiny.
In this webcast, Duncan Wood, Editor, RISK will be joined by John Macdonald, Director, IBM Risk Analytics and Peyman Mestchian, Managing Partner, Chartis to discuss the state of enterprise stress testing and unveil findings of a new study on Enterprise-level StressTesting (one of several research papers in Chartis' The Risk Enabled Enterprise® research program). A number of driving factors will be examined, including:
- How regulatory pressures are expanding and shifting the focus of stress testing
- Key challenges and priorities of enterprise-wide stress testing
- Technology capabilities and systems that firms need to adopt for this changing environment
- Primary benefits of enterprise stress testing
