About this paper
Stress testing can be viewed as either a regulatory check-the-box activity, or a tool to form a deeper understanding of the particular risks and the severities of those associated risks to an institution. In either case, the modeling, process, and reporting needs to be formally structured, methodologically robust, and efficiently scalable. This white paper discusses the critical role that forecasting plays in stress testing, the associated process management and workflow considerations, the methodological framework used, consistent application of scenarios and scenario variables, and the analysis and dissemination of results.
