Report - June 2023

This paper provides an overview of the stress testing landscape in relation to operational risk, including common practice, key challenges, and the path forward.

From the global financial crisis to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent economic downturn, to the invasion of Ukraine and escalating inflation rates, financial organisations are regularly faced with challenging operating conditions. Regulatory stress testing programmes aim to ensure the future stability of the financial system, by assessing firms’ capacity to withstand such extreme circumstances.

The paper was developed in partnership with the ORX Analytics Community and Banking Analytics Working Group, and is available to all ORX members to read.
