    • 1. Stress Testing
    • 2. VAR - what does it mean(value-at-risk) - the worst expected loss over a given horizon under normal market conditions at a given confidence level
    • 3. MAIN PROBLEM VAR m easure s can fai l to i de ntify extrem e u n u sual situations losses
    • 4. STRESS TESTING a process to identify and manage situations that could cause extraordinary losses
    • 5. STRESS TESTING toolsscenario analysisstressing modelspolicy responses
    • 6. Why stress testing? Simulating: SHOCKS THAT HAVE NEVER OCCURRED SHOCKS THAT REFLECT PERMANENT STRUCTURAL BREAK
    • 7. Imprementing scenario analysis Rp,s =∑Wi,t • Ri,s s - selected scenario i - number of scenarios R - portfolio return ❖
    • 8. generating unidimensional scenarios Guidelines for scenarios by DPG✓Parallel yield curve shifting by ±100 basis points✓ Yield curve twisting by ±25 basis points✓ Each of the four combinations or yield curves shift andtwist✓ Equity index values changing by ±10 percent✓ Currencies moving by ±6 percent for marjor currencies✓ Swap spreads changing by ±20 basis points
    • 9. The OTS* requiersto estimate what would happen toyour economic value under parallelshifts in the yield curve varyingfrom -400 to +400 basis points*The office of Thrift Supervision
    • 10. The SPAN system* The objective:to identify movements in portfolio values under a series of scenarios➙ SPAN searches for the largest loss that aportfolio may suffer and sets the margin at that level *1998, Chicago Mercantile Exchange
    • 11. The SPAN system ✔ it considers only two risk factors ✘ places the same probability on most of the scenarios ✘ ignores correlations between risk factors
    • 12. Multidimensional scenario analysis Unidimensional scenarios Prospective Scenarios Factor Push Method Conditional Scenario Method Historical Scenatios Systematic Scenarios
    • 13. «Bottom-up approach»◈ posting a state of the world◈ inferring movements in market as in a top-down approach
    • 14. Prospective ScenariosAn earthquake or war? Examine the effect*not well suited to large, complex pertfolios
    • 15. Factor Push Method➙ push up and down ➙ compute the changes to theportfolio➙ evaluate a worst-case scenario, pushing allparametres in the «worst loss» position*completely ignores correlation*looking at extreme movements may not be appropriate
    • 16. Conditional scenario Method ≈conditional normal VAR modeling▸ at the core is the covariance matrix▸ «KEY» variables R* + other variables R ASL = ∑ w *R *+ ∑ w R i i i j j j ✘ results are much closer to the actual stress loss ✘ only in case where correlation plays the main role
    • 17. Historical Scenarios✓ helps to identifyscenarios that may beoutside the VAR window✓ are useful to measurejoint movements in financialvariables
    • 18. Systematic ScenariosThis analysis provides insight into the vulnerabilities of a particular portfolio Maximum-loss criterion To identify the wors loss through an optimization that respects the correlations between the risk-factor movements ∆⨍ ML = min loss (∆⨍ ) subject to ⨍ˈ∑⁻¹ ∆⨍ ≤ C
    • 19. Stress testing model parametersSensitivity We need details! analysis Model Use the same period!parameters
    • 20. Managing Stress Tests Relevant scenarios require careful planning(1) Purchase protection or insurance for theevents in quiestion(2) Modify the portfolio to decrease the impact ofthe event(3) Diversify(4) Develop a plan to correct course of action(5) Prepare sources of alternative funding
    • 21. Conclusions People may be very bad at pre!cting extreme situations✓stress test can be viewed as an extension of the historicalsimulation method at increasingly higher confidence levels✓«blind spots» or complement to standard VARmth✓a complement to VARmth rather than a replacement✗ can lead to a large amount of unfiltered information✗ the risk to produce large numbers of scenarios✗ difficult to interpret
    • 22. Stress testing reminds:VAR is no guarantee of worst case loss
