Why You Should Attend

2nd Annual Stress Testing West Conference

The 2nd Annual Stress Testing West Conference will continue to shed light on evolving regulatory expectations for stress testing and model validation, particularly as regulators are scrutinizing model components and validation to a much greater degree. In addition to tackling the most pressing model and data concerns, practitioners will have an opportunity to share methodologies around setting an agile risk appetite that incorporates emerging risks along with stress test analytics to continuously mature the institutionís risk profile and resiliency. Attendees will also exchange innovative methodologies for right-sizing capital and liquidity buffers simultaneously as banks move towards a more holistic, sustainable approach to balance sheet management.

Submitting successful stress tests continues to be a top priority among banks and will likely remain so for some time. To maintain the level of resource optimization that would put banks in a position to focus on growth and sustainability, automation of risk practices needs to be emphasized to drive the kind of returns that will satisfy stakeholders.

Key Topics

  • Implement risk appetite alongside stress testing to enable a more effective risk appetite framework (RAF)
  • Supplement stress test analysis to make risk-informed decisions to enhance the banking model
  • Clarify the intent of regulatory expectations pertaining to model validation
  • Automate scenario testing processes while balancing long-term priorities with short-term operating budgets
  • Benchmark the impacts of DFAST and stress testing to mid-sized banks for practical, actionable insights
