Stress testing credit risk portfolios

Abstract

In this study we survey practices and supervisory expectations for stress testing (ST) in a credit risk framework for banking book exposures. We introduce and motivate ST; and discuss the function, supervisory requirements and expectations, credit risk parameters, interpretation results with respect to ST. This includes a typology of ST (uniform testing, risk factor sensitivities, scenario analysis; and historical, statistical and hypothetical scenarios), and procedures for conducting ST. We conclude with a simple and practical stress testing example using a ratings migration based approach.
