About this paper
Every bank conducts stress testing as part of compliance. But increasingly, savvy executives are taking stress testing enterprisewide and using it as a powerful management tool for everything from financial planning to accounting. With the right data and analytical software, you can quickly simulate different environmental conditions, or risk scenarios, to understand their effect on the financial position of your bank. Armed with this insight, you can make informed decisions and implement timely countermeasures that will protect the solvency of your organization – even during periods of crisis. As explored in this paper, achieving this goal requires that banks standardize their processes and methods and centrally manage data and systems.
