Recording | Stress Testing 101 For Market Risk
Under a risk management framework, stress tests are an indispensable complement to risk models such as VaR. Stress tests overcome the shortcomings of risk models during abnormal market or crisis periods by looking at extreme but plausible movements of risk factors. In this webinar, Robert Stamicar, Strategic Innovation, outlined common stress testing techniques--historical, user-defined, and transitive--and highlight the pros and cons of each type of stress test. Moreover, he provided guidance and use cases on designing meaningful market stress tests. For instance, when should a user-defined stress vs. a correlated (transitive) stress test be used? How do we combine different stress tests?
