Stress-Testing for Financial Institutions, Beyond Regulatory Constraints

Duration: 90 Minutes
This webinar will highlight pitfalls and chances of success for stress-testing to equip participants for adding key value to a financial institution's risk management structures. Through lecturing and on-the-go questions, the instructor will encourage participants to think beyond routine risks and to examine with lucid minds extreme risks, beyond the usual defense 'it will not happen', or 'it will not happen again'. It will also examine a few key scenarios to see how a financial institution can deal with such scenarios without compromising its key strategic objectives and enable every function to thrive in the knowledge that a few possible disasters have been prepared for.
