Stress Testing Integral to US Banks’ Ongoing Operations
CRISIL GR&A hosts roundtable for banks, regulators to discuss importance of risk management
The key stakeholders at the roundtable agreed that analyzing a bank’s financial performance to assess the potential impact of various adverse events and circumstances, relevant to its size, scale and complexity, can strengthen the bank’s risk management function and help in proper planning for economic and regulatory capital. They also agreed upon the fact that the risk management architecture needs to be constantly updated and calibrated on an ongoing basis to reflect the evolving liquidity and solvency levels at an organization level.
The participants also placed equal importance on a regular and rigorous process of model validation, which is essential for reaching an accurate outcome of stress tests, revealing the exact quantum of risk faced by banks.
