An in-depth discussion of ways to build, assess and enhance your framework

25th - 26th September 2018 

Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur

Reverse stress tests analyse the robustness and viability of business models under a range of circumstances. The objective is to identify and analyse scenarios in which the business model of a financial service firm is no longer viable and to derive mitigating actions.


Following the financial crisis all major supervisors now require financial service firms to complement their “normal” stress tests with reverse stress tests. The Bank Negara Malaysia laid out mandatory reverse stress testing requirements in Stress Testing Policy Document issued on 15 June 2017. Nevertheless, an industry best practice is still emerging. Implementations are often in an early state and vary widely in scope, nature and complexity.


This makes it difficult for risk managers, auditors, treasury managers, compliance managers, executives and other interested parties to assess what good (and not so good) practice looks like and how the current standards can be further enhanced.


Against this background the course introduces typical building blocks of reverse stress tests and discusses ways to assess and enhance existing frameworks.
