New Zealand Bank Vulnerabilities in International Perspective


Author Info

  • Rodrigo Cubero
  • Ray Brooks


The global financial crisis is creating stress on banking systems across the world through funding and asset quality shocks. This paper combines different stress scenarios, as well as cross-country analysis, to assess New Zealand bank vulnerabilities to the global crisis and the domestic recession. It finds that a sharp worsening of asset quality would be required to reduce bank capital below the regulatory minimum. On the funding side, a disruption to banks'' offshore funding may put pressure on the exchange rate, but would not trigger a systemic liquidity problem.
