The Federal Reserve Board, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation issued final guidance regarding stress testing. The guidance provides approaches and applications to be used for a satisfactory testing. This is to ensure that large banks have effective policy framework that could help them build appropriate risk management policies. While the regs are aimed primarily at the larger banks, all financial institutions should understand what’s happening as it’s only a matter of time before significant elements of these policies trickle down to the smaller institutions.

To explore and explain the new stress testing guidance, the Knowledge Group has put together a panel of experts to help CFO’s, Finance Executives, Advisers, and Attorneys understand its implications. The speakers will share their expert opinions in a two-hour LIVE Webcast.
