Overview

Stress testing has become an important tool for risk management and a key part of the regulatory framework. This course discusses various approaches to generating stress scenarios, simple ‘what-if’ scenarios and simulation techniques through to the use of full structural macroeconomic models of the global economy. It will look at examples of impact on the balance sheet and P&L projections under stress scenarios. Many types of risk can be exposed by stress testing that may not be apparent using only models calibrated to recent historical data. These risks are explored by looking at potential impact on regulatory indicators under stress scenarios. Hence the impact on capital ratios is explored and also the LCR and NSFR indicators of liquidity and the impact of stress scenarios on IRRBB (interest rate risk in the banking book) and the leverage ratio.

The course will also consider regulatory guidelines to stress testing and looks at regulatory stress testing exercises, for example, EBA/ECB, Bank of England and DFAST/CCAR.

An innovative area of focus on the course will be on coherent approaches to risk aggregation in order to construct an economic capital number based on stressed
scenarios. Participants will engage in Spreadsheet-based exercises and also role-playing exercises (live courses only) where time constraints and class sizes permit. Role-playing exercises will be used to practice engagement with a regulator, defending assumptions and responding to likely regulatory challenge.

  1. Get the timing right.
    Many people are afraid to request for training budget, because they can’t seem to find the “perfect time” to do it. Well, there’s no perfect time to ask for it, but there are definitely some moments that are better than others. For instance, if your boss is about to take a two week vacation, he/she might be in a good mood. If he/she just lost a major account, may not be wise at that juncture.
  2. Make a case for yourself
    When you ask for budget, you should be prepared with specific details and explanations about what is in it for the company and you’re superior. If you go into a meeting and just say, “I want to get budget for a conference,” it’s likely that your request won’t be taken seriously. If you want to plan ahead, then you should be prepared to explain the following points:
    1. Start by stating your accomplishments
    2. Show that you’re ready for more responsibility and eager to learn
    3. Describe:
    a) How this event will increase your productivity?
    b) How you will need less supervision
    c) How you can bring back the knowledge to the company
    4. Follow up
You might find free to attend events which are usually organized by a solution/service provider within the industry. Unlike at free to attend events, on a paid event you will find more diverse industry knowledge rather than presentations related to services or solutions.
In case you cannot attend for both days, you can always attend for just 1 day of the event. In this case we will send you all presentations of the 2 days. The participation fee is 70% of the original investment. In case you would like to attend the event for just 1 day please contact us on booking[at]glceurope.com
In case you are busy on 1 of the days, you certainly can split the 2 day conference with one of your colleague. All you need to do is send us an e-mail to booking[at]glceurope.com
We understand that not all senior-level professionals might be available on the dates. As the event is an annual event, most of the attendees try to postpone their engagements or send a small group from their teams to benefit from the conference.
