Stress Testing: A Discussion and Review (Afternoon)
Stress testing has become an important part of capital regulation for large U.S. banking organizations through the annual Dodd-Frank-Act stress tests (DFAST) and Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR). The Federal Reserve hosts the "Stress Testing: A Discussion and Review" conference to discuss the transparency and effectiveness of the stress tests and how the stress tests can remain a dynamic and useful tool of large bank supervision.
Held on July 9, 2019 at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, the conference brings together academics, regulators, bankers, and other stakeholders. The panels include overviews and discussions of themes that are at the forefront of stress testing, including the effectiveness of stress testing as a policy tool, dynamism and transparency in stress testing, and the effects stress tests have on economic and financial conditions. These panels feature thought leaders who provide unique perspectives on stress testing.
