Stress-testing the coronavirus: Black Swans and Grey Rhinos

Is the ongoing coronavirus pandemic a ‘black swan’, i.e. a high-impact event that is utterly unforeseeable and unmanageable? Or does it stem from foreseeable, obvious, but mostly ignored warning signals, i.e. a ‘grey rhino’?

In the aftermath of the global financial crisis, the ensuing recession left many banks and financial institutions severely undercapitalised and revealed their vulnerabilities to market crashes and economic downturns. As a result, financial authorities greatly expanded regulatory reporting and stress testing requirements to ensure a focus on capital adequacy and internal risk management strategies.

In seizing on the term ‘black swan’, many observers are missing the main points of such event: First, some of the most impactful events are unpredictable and beyond our imaginations. Second, decision-makers need to design systems that can stand up to extreme unexpected events.

Join us and our expert panel as they examine the expanding repertoire of stress-testing tools available to financial institutions and regulators alike to provide deeper and more dynamic insights into the capital, credit, market and liquidity risks they face.

Our panellists will take a deep dive into the crucial areas required to build robust and enduring regulatory reporting programmes:

  • Credit, Market and Liquidity Risk
  • Stress Testing Across International Exposures and Activities
  • Asset Market Effects and Bank Stress-Disclosures
  • Determining the Severity of Macroeconomic Stress Scenarios
  • New Frontiers in Stress Testing and Regulatory Reporting
