The devastating effects of the pandemic on global financial stability has forced financial authorities around the world to implement unprecedented fiscal and monetary measures to support and stimulate their beleaguered economies. As financial institutions navigate COVID-19’s devastating economic impacts, managing liquidity risk and regulatory reporting and maintaining regulatory compliance is more challenging than ever.

Under Basel standards, a major change now facing banks is around the new liquidity stress testing (LST) requirements. Financial institutions may have to adopt new models, create new scenarios, and run them concurrently. Regions may implement the Basel-drivers differently, but the challenges financial institutions face on the liquidity front are similar.

Join Adenza (formerly known as AxiomSL) in the webinar on Stress Testing in the Age of COVID-19 to explore:

  • Impact on Risk models in the age of COVID-19
  • EBA stress testing in 2021
  • Liquidity challenges faced by FIs
  • Basel IV timelines in Japan
  • Impact on the banking landscape in Japan
